    Yeah...Check local tire and muffler type places. Most will have a wall mounted spring compressor.

    Best of luck- and good call on having it done if you aren't comfortable with the rental piece you got!!

    i dont think Pep Boys will do it as its non OEM shock assembly... if they did, they will charge too much...

    best bet, find a mom n pop tire shop that does suspension work too...

    try to find a spot that works on a lot of custom applications like hot rods, lowriders, and trucks...

    believe it or not I actually found a guy to do it today, got em installed and still made kickoff at 1pm!

    For the record Pep Boys will not do it anymore. Had some place Munroe Muffler (like a Midas) do it but had to give the kid $40 cash on the side...well worth it, took 20min!!!!!

    $40 is about the going rate. Glad you could find a place to do it for you on a Sunday!
