    its pretty easy to do it yourself.
    just need about a couple jack stands, and of course a jack.
    and a spring compressor will help ya out too.

    I paid $150 or $175 for an install of my Bullitt Suspension upgrade kit with Ford Racing C Springs - install by my frequently used install shop

    One shop quoted me $350 to install plus alignment. I think I will do it myself.

    I paid $195 for installation of the Bullitt Suspension on my 2002 GT. Thought it was less, but just checked my records.

    I paid about $300 for the labor on my Koni yellows and springs, but that's only because I was having some other work done at a race shop and didn't want someone I didn't know touching my car. Being anal (and ignorant) is expensive.:nono:

    Hey 40th I am a straight shot down 316 from ya. I was going to come your way today. I believe the Mustangs Unlimited show was this afternoon. I had to go wheel and tire shopping instead.

    Oh crap. I forgot about the show at MU today. I am near 316 in Lawrenceville as well. :(

    I'm still debating on lowering my car since my driveway will cause me to scrape if I don't get the angle perfect.
