Suspension install around Seattle/Northend

Hey guys,

Any recommended shops to do the install of my Bilstein B-12's and Dinan goodies on my 128i around Seattle and the Northend?

I'm doing my Konis with Dinan plates/rsm this week at home. It is a bit more involved than I thought but I'll get it done eventually.

I have an appointment with Truline Bellevue to do my B-12s and Dinan goodies next week. An alignment is scheduled with them as well. Broadstrokeassociates would have been nice but Truline ended up with the best price quote.

I got my suspension all in and alligned. I have -2 degrees camber with the dinan plates in, which is pretty decent. Mush stiffer all around (middle setting) and ride height is actually higher than I expected (which is good) since I want to put 245 square tires for the track.

How are the bilsteins?

My B-12s are stiffer but soak up the bumps much better than my factory sport suspension did. Overall, my car feels more planted and only ended up being lowered by about half an inch. Since my car is only a daily driver I'm totally happy with my setup.
