Is this the going rate?. I would have never purchased these springs with that cost. What did u pay for install?.
Not that difficult if your mechanically inclined...yes you will need a spring compressor....also a good torque wrench up to at least 70-80 ft-lbs...jack stands and jacks...typical hand tools...How difficult would it be to install springs/dampers on my own? What tools would I need? Would I need a spring compressor?
Do you remember what you used to get to the 14mm upper mount bolts on the rears? Looks like it's too tight to get a ratchet and socket in there. Just wondering if a 14mm box would work??? Thanks. Appreciate any help.$260 to align the suspension...wow...it took me about 6 hours to change the springs out on my own...they should be able to do it quicker than that...I would think no more than 4 hours...how much do they charge per hour???...say it did take them 6 hours at a high price of $100/hour...that plus a high price of $100 for an alignment would only be in the $700 range....yes I think they are way to high for my part of the country...some areas have higher labor rates though but still seems too much...shop around first......
Thanks. Good info.If you are unfamiliar with the total process...this link gives a pretty good write up on the installation on Mazda "C" chassis...almost all information is exactly the same for the "D" chassis...
