Sarasota / Tampa lowering springs install

New to the area and Need some recommendations on a shop to install eibach pro kit springs on my 2018 F32.

From what I've read here on the board it should be around $500 including alignment to do.

I've contact two so far and they are just looking up what the "catalog" says for time, etc. and getting $1200 quotes

FWIW...

1 hour per corner is about right, with a proper lift. The rears will take less and the fronts a bit more. Depending on labor rates, this will put you in the $400 range. I absolutely would not pay more than $500.

Add an alignment on top for another $100-150.

This has been done in countless garages across America on jackstands (with a AutoZone spring compressor in my case). Point is, decide how much your time and effort is worth and go from there. Its not a rocket science type project by any means. I took my time and made it happen over a Saturday afternoon, early evening.

Thanks sspade

So $1200 is ridiculous then correct?

I wouldn't mind doing it myself as I try most other thing diy. Would be nice to have someone to do it with me but I could manage. Only reservation is it's our only vehicle so would hate to have extended downtime without transportation
