Coilover / Lowering Springs / Sway Bar / Camber Arm Installation

EDITTED: I've worked on an abundance of cars, so instead of posting it all on here, you can check out more cars I've worked on @ http://instagram.com/waisgarage
-just as good as a professional install. only difference is the price
-located @ 94538 zip coede region
-keep in mind that the initial height right after installation will become lower because the springs need time to settle


If you are still interested, send me a PM and I'll get back to you. Most likely you'll have to drive to me, or I can drive to you which will include gas price.My current set up is using a K-sport kontrol pro set.Here is my

Hello! I'm located in the 94538 zip code region and price can be negotiable. Please contact me on fb @ https://www.facebook.com/Waikyaw or text me 5103784150 for the price. I do not like announcing it online. You can also private message me, but I might not reply as fast.

Is this a common problem? The guy has not stated he has heard any noises from the front. Also the steering rack was not touched during installation unless you're bringing it up just for reference.

yes this is a common issue there is a tsb for it from honda but it normally is a lot more present when the car is lowered.... i know you dont touch the steering rack to do suspension install but its a good idea to go over those bolts so there isnt any popping or creaking

Hey I know it specifically says "coilover/lowering springs installation" but I can't really afford that at the time (being a student and all) I was wondering if there are any other methods to lower my car. I drive a 1999 Toyota Corolla DX btw. I saw that people cut springs? What is that? And if you do that. How much do you charge per spring?
