15004x4 is on a distinguished road
Default Bilstein cost question

I'm close to pulling the trigger on getting a set of 5100's to level out my 1500 4x4. Can I save any $ by buying them myself and having a shop install them or should I just let the shop order & install them? Also, could anyone in the SoCal area between LA and LBC recommend a shop to do the install and alignment? Thanks!!

Depends on labor rates at the shops in your area some shops will charge more if you supply the parts, some won't if you can find a good shop that charges the same rates for installing parts you supply vs parts they supply then yes you can save money if your looking for a full set of 4 (front and back) you can check them out here https://discountautoperformance.com/...7cc74ba018e3e3
