    H&R sport springs installation $$$$ 2016 Q5 2.0

    Going to buy H&R's,then have them installed. Local Indy shops quoting 7-9 hrs labor. This means $700 & up+ alignment. Does this sound about right? Is there any market for the oem springs? I am in N.C. Comments appreciated.

    Thats what the books call for although it takes less than half that time but shops that dont do this kinda thing on a regular basis will err on the side of caution. Any performance shops near you ? Or shops the specialize in suspensions ?

    Better off taking it to a performance shop. Good ones will do a job like this in 4-5 hours and will usually have much more knowledge on what to do should an issue come up during

    Lol definitely do not use that shop. Search around. Sometimes it's worth it to drive an hour or so. Install +alignment shouldn't be much over $500.
