Garage 5 in Richmond did an awesome job on my car. They installed my Koni Shocks, Ground Control camber kit and SPC front and rear camber kit. Very nice guys to deal with.

Recommend Rise JDM and Garage 5, never personally got work done at garage 5, but i've heard nothing but good reviews. and Rise jdm did a good job on my car and my friend's car.

I dont know about JDM's pricing, they're good for other things, but Garage 5 doesn't change much for coilover installs.

I had shitty tires on that were getting changed. They were going to align it but he said when you get your new tires come back, and he will align for free. So yes, it is including alignment.

It may not be a matter of 'manning up'. Not everyone has a place to do this kind of install, let alone the tools. Plus, it's a fairly new car... maybe the OP is worried about fucking something up?

OP could live in a ruthless building like myself. I'd love to work more on my car, but in my condo building, I get warnings for even popping my hood to check my oil

There are plus sides in taking it to a shop... when Garage Five installed lowering springs in my previous car, it was done in half an hour. I barely had time to walk down to Starbucks before they were calling me telling me my car was done

I'd go with Speed Syndicate in Burnaby. Or if you don't mind traveling far, Dale's Alignment in Langley is great too.
