    Default Help please guys stealers are expensive

    Hi guys not sure if this is the right section but i have recently aquired my new suspension set up and im wondering if anyone on here knows of someone that will fit my setup cheaper than Vauxhall have quoted me.
    I called Evans Halshaw in Wolverhampton today and asked for a quote for the following work-

    Fit front and rear shocks and springs
    Fit front and rear powerflex arb bushes
    fit front droplinks

    I was quoted £375 + vat :0

    I think thats a bit steep and just wondered if someone could help me find someone cheaper
