Streetline Alfa 156 suspension kit V6

I've read some good things about the Streetline 156 suspension kit and am thinking about buying it to upgrade my 2.5 V6. What sort of cost am I looking at for having the suspension changed at a garage? Not necessarily an Alfa one and definitely not a main dealer. I'm not made of money...

Re: Streetline Alfa 156 suspension kit V6

When I had my Eibach springs and shocks fitted to my 156 last year, Gonnella Bros charged me £200 for fitting.

Having said that, my suspension was in pretty good nick (ARBs, upper and lower wishbones etc.) so be prepared to budget a bit more if yours is a bit tired.

Its usually about 3 to 4 hrs work depending on problems encountered but also worth to replace the front anti roll bar drop links if they are old - pretty cheap part
