Definatly do them yourself for that price. $800. No way I would pay for that to just put springs on.

I have to put mine in too, but driving across Wisco to install springs isn't my thing during the middle of winter . Now if it was spring time I would be there for sure. I've always wanted to see your place and the 6. How far are you from the Twin Cities?

It takes me 4 hours to see the pack defeat the vikes .
I am going to pay $600 and get this done asap.
I hate waiting.
I want to see if the height will make me like the size of my 19" m6 rims.
That way I can spend more money on performance oriented
mods.

you should really do coilovers, i dont think that springs will give you the desired drop. Good way of avoiding spending 2x for install.

Good luck with all the mods...car will look bananas. those black hammans are worth 8k

I won't get started on the whole Pack vs. Vikes thing (although our record was better). If my wife hadn't been a cheerleader for the Vikes a couple years back I wouldn't even be a football fan at all.
If I had the ends like you seem to, I wouldn't wait either. I'm anxious to see what your ride looks like when it's done. I have to agree with everyone else on here, the Hamann's would look sick if you got them.

eibach pro-kit springs installed!
Very happy on the ride!
I had a lond windy and hilly country road back home and absolutely love the ride.
The front drop is perfect .
the rear is not great but acceptable for me.
I cannot slam the car because of my driveway and the snow we get,
even thou This is a third car I prefer to drive this rather than my suv's
