I bought a set of H&R Front Springs. Just called a local indy shop and got a quote of $298. Also said I'd need an alignment for an additonal $100. Is that in the ballpark or should I look elsewhere? Thanks!!!!

2-3 hours of labor should be pretty average. You could also DIY
Okay... so that quote is probably fair. Yeah..I wanted to tackle it by myself. Just not sure if I was going to have the time to do it. I may just wait and do it on my own. No real rush right now. Thanks!

Cool... I think I'll tackle this one versus dropping it off at the shop. $250-$300 is better spent elsewhere. Thanks!

I heard you loud and clear here..

That's something that a kid with a $2K Camaro and no money would do.
..and then again here..

Folks don't just change the springs, if they are wise & experienced. You're not patching together a $900 Ford Taurus with a busted spring to sell in the Sunday paper.
I took your post into consideration, but chose not to respond. The problem with your post is you educated me on the cons of installing springs but then you followed them with unecessary comments. It's like a teacher telling a student "No! No! No! This is the way you do it, stupid!" I appreciate your advice and info in the beginning of your post, but it needed to end right there. Thanks.

For some reason..this doesn't scream obsessed to me. I simply wanted to know if it was in the ballpark because I wasn't sure how long the job actually takes. I've read a few other spring install threads and the service prices were varying. That's it. Unfortunately, I didn't see any posts from you on those. You made your point. H&R Front Springs only...bad. CHECK!

Again, I appreciate your "shock treatment style" advice, but I think you have me confused with other forum members you may have had to set straight. I didn't pennypinch to buy my car nor do I pennypinch on service or mods. This front springs mod? Okay... needed a little education on consequences of doing such. I'll look into other suspension upgrades.

For what it's worth...your technical details, examples and insight sunk in after your first post.
Thanks.
