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.

Ventura...Hmmm how close is that to Saratoga/San Jose area? I want to get some new springs too and would pay you to install them for me. How much are springs anyways?

t0nyd4tiger, how much did you pay for your springs? They should be the same for my e39 also.
I'm still interested in your rims BTW.

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.
