I just ordered some coil overs and a control arm kit for my a4 and now I'm going to start looking for a place to install it all.

My question is how much should I be looking at spending maybe some high and low figures...

TIA [:)]

Also, to a moderator we should have a sticky of what installation of certain things should cost.

where in MI are you? My mechanic quoted me 1000 for installation for suspension and control arms. thankfully djwimbo and onemoremile live about 1/2 hour away and did it for significantly cheaper.

I live in Muskegon so maybe 45 min tops to Grand Rapids.

And DIY would be fine but I dont have a garage... so yeah.

You should PM AZ member djwimbo. He lives in Grand Rapids (I think) and does work for fair prices. Plus it is a good chance to learn on how to do it yourself.

^ I don't think it would be safe to take the car to tampa for a control arm change.
