Coilover Install

I have a set of 4 Tien coilovers for my 2013 FRS and I am trying to find a shop in the valley to do the install. Is anyone familiar with any mechanics that are willing to do coilover installs?


Every place I reach out to is dead set against it.

Why not just install them yourself? It's not difficult and (as any 86 owner should) it's an educational opportunity to do the work on your own car. Myself and a couple friends finished installing my Teins in about 2 hours and that was only because we're strict on detail.

Unless the shop is SPECIFICALLY oriented towards installing aftermarket/performance parts, they won't do it. Especially chain stores. If you don't have any legitimate performance shops around your best bet is a set of tools and some homies to knock it out. Learn how to work on your own car. You'll get more out of it.

Thank you for this! It took me a while to get to it but I finally completed the installation and I have learned so much about my car from just this install! Already planning a bunch more modifications!

I am currently scheduling an alignment on it so I can start driving it again!
