I found a link the best before/after shots of the springs I've ever seen.

They are the same light, angle, distance, etc...it really shows the difference well.

The springs are a definate necessity! Nothing majorly dramatic, but it reduces the HUGE wheel well gap!

^^^ You're right, you could totally see the difference. It looks hot w/ the springs, but I don't think i'll be getting them b/c i have a bump in my driveway, and need that extra gap so I don't mess up the car.

I think there is another link that said purchase and install totalled about $300.00. SO I'm guessing install is around $90-100.

guys, be prepared for 300+ dollar install quotes all day long. Dealers are making BANK off these springs, and will continue to do so because they know that people wont touch their own new car........and people want to keep the factory warranty. Most quotes ive seen are around $700.00 in many different states etc.

I think MAYBE he was confused when I asked about the spring install or something. All the other prices were great......

wtf? ouch...

I couldn't remember if you said you got it at Maita - I was hoping you were going to say Roseville, Folsom, anywhere but Maita
Damn. My thoughts exactly.

why don't you just install them yourself. Go to your local pep boys, or auto zone, or even Napa and rent a spring compressor for $20. Then just set a couple hours apart and have some fun. It shouldn't be hard at all on a brand new car. Oh yeah, and make sure you got some cold beer on hand and you're somewhere where you can swear and not offend old people!
