i just bought H and R springs for my '01 E39. i dont know how to install them so im going to have to take it to a shop. how much am i looking to spend for spring installation? i dont want to get slammed without knowing the going rates. i live in Southen California (westminster). thanks guys.
it should take about 1 hour of labor. maybe two.
it has never taken me more than an hour to do it. probably looking at around $100 give or take. i wouldn't pay any more than that.
if u r good at wrenching, its pretty easy, and u can rent spring compressors from auto zone for a few $$. it will save alot of $$$ and you will have the satisfaction. im in ventura, if u want to, drive up here and u can pay me to do it.

powerm, thats like 1 hour north, maybe more from me...... too far.
i got some H and R springs for my E39 for only $127.50. yep, i got it for a steal off ebay and went and picked them up so saved $40 shipping. they are slightly used but look BRAND SPANKING NEW w/ all bits and pieces. i guess i got lucky =)
whenever you're ready for the rims, let me know buddy.
