Used Springs and Prices

So Im gunna buy some tien springs, the seller claims they have about 50 miles on them. Before I buy them what should I look for to make sure theyre still in good condition?

Also what would be an average price for a shop or a local mechanic to install them?

There really isn't ugh to look at with springs really, I would mostly look for major damage to them and possibly burn marks or evidence of a coil being cut off.

Install charges will vary from shop to shop so the best bet is to shop around.

Ohh okay thanks!
& would $100 be a reasonable price to install them?

I would think so, they usually take a couple hours and most shops charge $70-$80/hr so that seems like a damn good price. Is it a reputable shop?

Ah ok. Just make sure he does quality work. A lot of guys have been screwed by mechanics trying to do side jobs.
