View Full Version : Minnesota/surrounding: Coilover install?

03-27-2009, 10:46 PM
So - lowering springs, I can handle.

Coilovers ... ehh .. not so much LOL

I have never even held coilovers in my hands before.

SO - does anyone in MN or surrounding area (I live in St Paul, and for help I'll drive a pretty good distance haha) want to make some extra cash and show me how to install a set of coilovers?

After a lot of reviewing, I decided that because of the shitatious winters we have it would be best if I can just adjust the height instead of having to switch back from after market to stock.

I am looking at the Megan coilovers (I am trying to keep this under $1,000 .... like closer to $900 including shipping) I found this set on EBay and I am pretty sure I am going to pick these up:

I know I could just have a shop put them on, but seriously - what will I learn from that?

So ... if there are any takers, lemme know. It wouldn't be until the very end of April or 2 weeks into May

If you can do the springs you can do the coilovers. There really isn't much difference. Just have to do the rear shocks ( like 2 bolts ). But i think every time you adjust them your gonna need to align it if you care much about your tires.

Cool deal, that's good to know. Then that is something the hubby and I can handle in our garage. Thanks, Camaro!
