ok, so im looking to lower my car but do it properly with coilovers and the like, i dont know much about suspension.
so i phone up mid pooint garage to get a quote for lowering my car and using coil overs and an additional price for fitting my weicher strut brace thats been sat in my garage for a year.
i said it wanted lowering to a good level, not too low it may present problems, but say 40mm
the quote sent via email is as follows and this is with club discounted labour.
so the lady has priced for lowering springs only and not said anything about coilovers, and its at 30mm.HI,
THE PRICE TO FIT YOUR STRUT BRACE IS £ 57.50 INC VAT
THE PRICE TO SUPPLY AND FIT SET OF EIBACH LOWERING SPRINGS (LOWERED BY 30MM, THESE ARE THE ONLY ONES LISTED FOR THE ASTRA COUPE TURBO)
IS £ 274.25 INC VAT.
IF YOU WANT TO GO ANY LOWER THEN YOU WOULD NEED COIL OVERS.
the price i think is extortionate for just springs, the strut brace looks to be 2 hours labour cost, i thought this was a 30 min job for a tuning expert.
do these prices look right to you?
and if so where should i go to get a 'fair' price.
i was gonna ask MPG to supply and fit a whiteline RARB, but im afraid the price would scare me lol.
