    Coilover Fitting

    I have had a brand new set of TEIN Pro Street Coilovers sitting in my garage for over a month now and still not fitted.

    I tried when I first bought them and got stuck on the first pinch bolt I tried..grrrrr
    Long story short I had to take it to my local garage to get the bolt out and left £200 lighter for the priviledge!!!!

    Anyway just wondering if anybody knows who in my area (Bury St edmunds, Suffolk) could fit them for me at a good rate ( I am happy to help as well)

    I have tried a few local garages but they either say '''errr what are coilovers" or " Phhhheeewwww (while sucking in air through clenched teeth)......thats a big job and it will cost ya around £300 + VAT" - which strikes me as being a lot for the job.
