Default Georgia Lowered Guys

Hey, I am wondering is there any shops in Georgia that can install my lowering kit i bought for cheap or is there anybody that might be around me that could possible help me do it.

I am in Gwinnett and trying to find a shop around my area.

You think soo? Because i stoped at a few places and they said they dont know how to do it. And one guy said he will charge 400 dollars.. Wayyy to much to install the kit. Thats how much i spent to get the kit.

Lowering isn't that complicated, TBH.

It will definitely take a while, maybe about a day if you hammer down, but it's not complicated at all. Me and Rstangboi are lowering mine tomorrow.

You don't need a spring compressor. Just drop the beam all the way down so there's no tension on the spring and you can remove the nut holding it on.

With absolutely no experience, this might take you about 15 hours to do. With reading that guide, and the correct tools, maybe 8 hours.
