    As above, does this seem a fair price for fitting 4x springs and a lower ball joint assembly ? Bearing in mind Cornwall location !

    had my spring fitted fo £70 so that leaves another £210 for the rest..seems a bit steep even though the lower ball joint can be a pig to replace...

    H&R's now on, along with ball joint..... Would say only slightly stiffer ride, than the normal Cup set up. At last goes round right handers, with out twitching all over the place. With H&R Springs 009.jpg With H&R Springs 010.jpg
