Most quotes are coming back at 500-600 for eibach sportline install on 2019 sport hatchback. Anyone from the bay area have recommendations for a shop? Honestly didn't expect it to cost so much to install. Should have ordered coilovers assuming it'd cost the same. Any help is appreciated!

I got mine done at Motorsport techniques in Hayward. I heard about them via another thread on here, I think Remus had worked with them in the past. Cost about $650 for the springs, rear camber arms and alignment. I tried calling around to some other shops, but most of them didn't pick up or return my call.

Only thing I'd mention is to have them trim the bumpstops. I don't think they did on mine so I'm getting a little bit of creaking when I turn at low speeds. If it bothers me enough, I'll take it back to them. They said they'd fix any issues for free if there were any with the install.

Get a quote for the fronts and install the rears yourself?

Shop time is expensive without the hookup, doubly so in the bay.

very happy with the results. Sportlines dropped it more than i expected but the ride is solid.
