    Springs fitting price...

    Just been given a price of £100 to fit my Eibach springs at a local garage...

    This a good price or are they ripping me off??

    Thanks...

    doesnt seem all that bad to me! whats that, 2.5 hours at 40ph, that isnt bad at all, of course its cheaper if you do it yourself but if you aint confident then best leave it to the pros
    1.6 8 valve, 5 door, soon to be a 5 studded let with crusty arches

    Rear ones are easy, one bolt either side to loosen the shock, drop old ones out and put new ones in. Fronts are a bit more difficult as you need to remove the whole shock, spring compressors to remove the shock and put it all back in etc.

    Paid £80 or so to get mine all changed last year so £100 is about right.

    Yea i heard that the front ones make it tricky...

    Not going to attempt this one so would prefer to get someone who knows what they are doing...

    Would 17's be ok with the 50-30 springs on a mk4?

    Ive always had to use spring compressors on my rear, to remove and fit standard and remove and fit the jamex ones, maybe Im doing it wrong but just isn't enough space to remove them unless they are compressed. The fronts really aren't that hard, they look scary but when you actually change one you realise how easy it is to do.

    My old rear springs were snapped, but we've had the Jamex ones out recently when fitting the rear discs, no issues really...

    I'd do the fronts myself next time after seeing them done when Geoff changed the shocks, it's one of those jobs that looks worse than it actually is!
