    Help with springs/brakes etc

    well i am offering my services to fit springs/shocks/coilovers/RARB new brakes/pads/ discs for a small cost. Wheels, exhausts from cat back.

    the prices here are examples for a MK4.

    new pads front only (£10) 30-45mins
    new pads & discs front only (£20) 1-1.5hrs
    bleeding the brakes (£10) 30mins
    fitting new brake calipers, pads, discs, bleed front only (£25) 1.5-2hrs

    Springs (£15) 1.5-2hrs
    Coilovers including the adjustment (£25) 2-2.5hrs

    Rear Anti Roll Bar (£20) 1-1.5 hrs

    I think the prices are good and if i wasn't competent i would be willing to pay them. I don't plan on making money on this but i do need to compensate myself a little and wear on the tools etc.

    As you are most probably well aware a garage would charge 4-5times as much.

    Let me know what you think, I have plenty of space here/flat level ground etc

    If anoyone would be interested please let me know in this thread or PM me,
