Coilover Install in Boston?

Hey guys - anyone have a recommendation on a place in Boston or nearby to have my coilovers installed.

I have done this once on my old e30 but I don't feel like doing it without a garage anymore. I called one place and was quoted $750 which seemed pretty steep to me. I don't need professional service, just looking to get the job done at a decent price.

Thanks

Give Berto a shout at Motive Auto works. 978-317-1804. Good guy. He's putting my FMIC in tomorrow. He's in Woburn right off 93

I recommend Ace Performance Tuning in Tewksbury. (978) 710-3116 They do my routine maintenance and installed my suspension upgrades (see signature). Great guys, good work, fair prices.

Just had some small work done at Motive Auto Works in Woburn. Alberto is a really awesome guy and knows his stuff. Clean shop and really cares about what you want and need done. He is the guy I will be using for anything I don't feel I can handle.

+1 on Hero/Alberto, I have been seeing him since my Subaru days, always does great work.
