We can save you a chunk of money if you so desire... We can install the springs and sways, and then you take it to have it aligned... No biggee... Joe and I installed my springs in the driveway in about two hours, and it was dark... I drove it for two weeks after with no alignment and it was still tracking straight as an arrow... I'll have the whole car aligned after my build since the front and rear clips will be completely out of the car... But I'll be happy to help with the springs and sways... And as mentioned, get ahold of Chris and see what he can do for you...I think another of our gang is getting ready to do some major suspension stuff soon...possibly at the same location...

If you are up for a little ride give Heath over in Fredricksburg a shot. His shop is American Muffler and Brake. He is a Pedders Dealer, in fact they use his shop to train other Pedders dealers. You will not find a more talented, and dedicated suspension guy in Texas. I hualed my car all the way from El Paso to his shop just to let him do the suspension, and it was worth every mile. They pulled an 20 hour marathon session and did it all in one day/night, and it was right.

I dont get back in town until friday night, but can help with spring install. its only a couple hours and not difficult. My fee is, lunch or dinner whichever time we do this LOL. Yes you need to get it aligned but not as quickly as some would think. i actually drove mine for 10K had it aligned and there was very little adjustment needed.

The springs and sways are pretty straight forward. Have the specs ready for the alignment shop when you go in and talk to them before booking the appointment. Let them know what you are looking for for set up and the car will be lowered and if the lifts they have can handle the drop. Most will be able, but there are a few racks out there that the sensors they put on the wheels won't read across the front due to the fascia and some of the ramps to the rack are a little steep.

Springs and sways figure about 4-5 hours, depending on skill level. Remove the front sway from the passenger side when you're working on the coil and damper.

And a small disclaimer, the 20 hours was a full suspension replacement using a few new & different parts.
