Fitting lowering springs for Polo 6R
« on: December 12, 2012, 11:17:48 pm »
Hi everyone, just got myself some lowering springs for my polo, now I need someone to put them on for me. Can anyone recommend a reliable place with a reasonable price for the work? I've quoted Brodie on Grafton but it's over my budget. I'm located in Auckland and any help is much appreciated! Thanks.

Most places will be between 400-600 dollars..

It can be a prick of a job.

I certainly need some guidance for that, no way I am comfortable to do that on my own. If I have the right tools and an expert next to me, I'd probably give it go haha

Give them a call http://precisionwheels.co.nz/

Most of my wheel works are done by them at about $40+GST per hour if I remember correctly.

Good service, great people to deal with.

They installed my coils and it took them approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. Charged me little over $100.
