I got quoted to install techart lowering springs, alignment and fix any codes $1400 total, that seem right??
I completely agree! I would hold off on the alignment till the springs have settled. Also, if you're going with a minor drop (1 inch or less), an alignment is not completely necessary. I know many members will disagree with that last statement, but that's my opinion based on several cars I've had modified. But if you want to do it the "proper Porsche way", they will recommend an alignment even if the drop is .4 of an inch...I read somewhere (one of these forums) to let the springs settle before doing the alignment. I’m looking to get lowering springs but trying to get 20” wheels as well and do everything together. Would be a drastic change for sure.
Techart springs are already expensive at around $600, add that to a proper alignment that a Porsche Dealership will literally take a few hours to do, just for the alignment portion, and your price is pretty right on... You can save a bit by getting the work done at a Porsche specialty shop vs a dealership, but that's $200 in savings at best.I got quoted to install techart lowering springs, alignment and fix any codes $1400 total, that seem right??
I was quoted $440 for an alignment (it is actually $660 since I have ACC and LCA)
I’m going to first order my 20” and install them first, see how it looks then get lowering springs and only after that do the alignment.
Anyone know where I can get springs installed in NJ? I was just going to goto Mavis as they are up the street.
