      within the week upgrading suspension a bit. tossing around air eventually but the heights driving me crazy so just gona go H&R/bilsteins for now. was either gona get from AWEtuning online or ECS...shipping kind of a pain so anyone know out here if they offer better comparable prices.

      i was thinking STS but last time i called i was actually told be better off to buy myself online...kind of odd but hey. shoots

      average price for installs out here.

      Even if u purchase on ur own, ur best bet it STS ( or Premier as they are known now)... steer clear of wrench Werx unless you want them to charge you for erroneous stuff that has nothing to do with suspension :/

      I'm sure they are just trying to help you save money. I got my FKs online and took it to premier to get them installed.

      I agree with this. Premier aka STS, are customer friendly.

      Man I gotta stop having the body guy answer the phone ... We do our best at getting you folks the best pricing but it's getting harder to beat online ordering nowadays, we can surely match it. But it all comes down to what you want, where you drive everyday, what you expect out of your suspension, and last but not least your budget.

      ST coilovers are by far the best bang for your buck as far as comfort and mid level performance, compared to other entry level coilovers that are cheaper (JOM, Raceland, ROKR etc.), spend a tad more you get something way better in the long run and North American customer support and warranty which is through KW North America ST's parent company

      But give the shop a call and we can chat about what exactly your looking for..

      Thanks for the support to all who posted..Kama Premier's PR guy and I don't mean Puerto Rican
