Spring install cost?

So I'm getting to the point I want to swap my springs. I'm curious as to the average/normal cost to expect for install. I'm doing a minimal drop 1" or less. I just want to firm up the ride a bit. Do I need a pan hard bar thing too?

Panhard bar is required with springs otherwise your rear axle will not be aligned properly. So yes, you need it.

Expect $350-$450 for install price for springs and panhard bar.


Goodluck!

I thought pan hard bar was only required on drops more than an inch?

I dropped my car 1" and the rear axle was off center by 1/2" or so. So unless you can live with this then, yes, an adjustable panhard bar is required.

Don't cheap out. Get the panhard bar. As for the install, it really isn't that difficult to do yourself and you'll save a good chunk of change.

It was free on my 2010, but I do all my own installs, the only thing I don't screw with is Paint.
I lowered the back of my 2010 1.25" and 1/8" off, but it came from Ford it was an 1/8" off the other way.
Changing Shocks and Springs are rather easy, and most of the tools you need are not that expensive and having them around is always a good thing, and a spring compressor can be borrowed/rented from your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto.

Or you can just buy some spring compressors from Amazon for $40. I hate borrowing tools from auto parts stores. The last couple times all of them have been broken.

I actually have a friend that has a set. As for the rest, I have enough tools to rebuild most of the components on our Mack trucks at work.

I don't know about how much money they cost. But mine cost me a few hours of my time at home. Not a terribly hard thing to do if you have the basic tools.

I had to get rid of most of my tools when I moved and our complex won't even let me put the hood up except for a jumpstart. So most of my mods have to be done via a shop.

52 feet to the first column that blocks access all the way across on one side and you can get a Saturn and Ranger on the other side, right now it is 2 car with all the crap in it, but it is also the whole basement of a 66 foot long house.
The only picture I can find, the car is all the way in, that is the columns that is 52 feet from the door.

I have finished the concrete though
