    Default Fitting lowering springs

    I have had a quote for fitting all 4 springs, I thought I would ask what you think is a good price? So I can compare it with my quote. thanks

    Depends who's quoted you...

    I gave the mechanic at work £100 to fit my springs AND brake upgrade.

    If you're going to a stealer, I would imagine 3 hours at about £100/hr

    Just brought my lowering springs for £144 from LMF and had them fitted by my mate who owns a garage. He fitted the spring, shocks and front 314mm brakes for £150 which I thought was good. HTH

    Depending on who does it, they can be done in under an hour

    Around £100 is a fair price.
