Coilover Install Shop in NorCal?
 
Anyone have any suggestions for a shop I could go to to install coilovers in norcal?

Depending on the brand, I know there are two peddlers authorized installers.

Abel Chevrolet in Rio vista
Custom Alignment in Santa Clara (maybe neighboring city)

Other places are:
Synergy Motorsports in Fremont.
Force fed performance in roseville.

Those are the shops I know off the top of my head.

I use Synergy with Borelli Motorsports as a fallback.

Synergy has a 3 week backlog and is essentially one person. I have been in his queue for two weeks myself for a ton of work.

As I tell everyone, you go to Synergy when you want your car done correctly the first time. The owner knows he's the only real game in town and acts like it so not everyone will appreciate his approach at customer service.

After a bad experience at another shop and a ton of research you really have few options in NorCal.

Suspension & Alignment - Borelli Motorsports
Suspension, LS engine builds, FI, tuning, etc - Synergy Motorsports

Otherwise you are driving to SoCal for work.

If you want to drive to SoCal there are several good shops, personally I would just do the install yourself and then get it aligned.

Just spoke to Rick, he has a 1 month backlog so check out some of the other suggestions in this thread.

Rick (Synergy) does some great work. Took both of my Camaros there when I needed stuff done.

Holy smokes, 1 month?!?

I'll give Borelli Motorsports a call

Roger Kraus Racing in Castro Valley was recommended to me by Livermore Performance. They fit me right in and did a great track alignment for me. They said when I get coilovers to bring it in for a new alignment and corner weighting. They run NASCAR west so they must know what their doing. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again and I am a 2 1/2 hour drive away.

I really don't get people wanting a (insert model here) performance shop to install something as basic as suspension components. Source the right parts on the internet and go to a shop that does suspension all day long. I took all my stuff to the local Big-O.

Because a popular shop that hasn't been mentioned screwed up a coilover install. That and apparently Pedders has identified a large number of failed coilovers due to installer error.

Would this shop rhyme with new bait? Lol I went there to get my cam and header install and they did an alright job, I was getting ready to buy suspension parts and take it to them but if they're messing up I might have to go to synergy
