Where to go in S. Puget Sound for suspension install?

I just ordered Eibach springs and sways for my Camaro and now need to choose a shop to install them. I live in Dupont, WA, so between Olympia and Tacoma is best. I work in Gig Harbor, so that'd be easy, too.

I know this install isn't rocket science, but I do want someone who will do a good job and be careful with the car and their work. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Rob

I'm sure I could do it all (done springs before on my 3rd Gen Camaro), but don't really have the time. I've read that the front sway is a PITA.

Why in the world would we need to use a welder? I have a MIG, BTW.

Bringing this back up to the top to see if there are any more suggestions. I've had the parts for months and I'm finally ready to have the work done! Thanks.

I installed my kit in less than four hours in my garage. Then had the alignmnt done at max rpm in bremerton. I could install your kits for about 200.00 if that sounds good to you.

Thanks, guys. My only hesitation on doing it myself is that I've read that the front swaybar is a real PITA to get out. Also, working in my garage is pretty cramped and it would surely take me all day moving it in and out, jacking and unjacking, etc. Since it is my daily driver, it really needs to get done in a weekend at most. This work just doesn't feel like it is worth my time (not that it would be technically difficult).

OK, Clay. I talked to Matt at Goodneighbor and they are going to give it a go on Saturday for me. Just FYI, labor rate is $92.50 per hour.

I got my wheels and tires for my Silverado SS from Matt and he gave me the best price on them, and I going to have him put my drop kit on my truck soon, my 2SS Camaro is at 2500 so hopefully it will be here with in the next 6-8 weeks.
