    Hi, i live near Charlotte, NC and i am looking for a shop that can install my front Bilstein 5100 shocks and OME coils. I don't want to pay an arm and leg just to get them installed. I've already been quoted $270 just to install the front shocks without an alignment and that seems like its a little too high. Do any of you guys know of a shop near the Matthews, Waxhaw, Weddington, Monroe area that can install my front shocks and coils for cheap? Thanks, your help is Greatly appreciated. :)

    Might be a bit far, but these folks have done some good work for me for a reasonable price. Ask for Rick.

    Thanks guys. What do you guys consider a fair price to have a shop install the front shocks and coils?

    i work at a motorcycle shop and our hourly rate is $100. i would figure that a pro could get the job done in easily less than 2 hours, probably closer to 1. took me 2.5 to do the front by myself and had a buddy help with the rear and got it done in about the same time.
    i would say $150-200 is fair, however i still vote on doing it yourself
