Coil Install + alignment in Bay Area?

So I've got KW V3s on the way and I need somewhere to get these on my car! Any help or shop recommendation in the South Bay?

I doubt I'll get them on in time for the next autoX so I've got a few weeks before the one after that.

Mann engineering! They do both, Although you can probably do the suspension install yourself.

Great thread. I'm not a local as well and all my tools are back east, and I also don't have a proper garage, so any good references to local speed shops who work on Subarus/import performance cars would be great.

I'll look up that shop in Milpitas for starters.

I heard back from MANN and they gave me line about how KW sucks but theyed install them anyway at a CRAZY high price but won't help me out when they fail. They also went on to let me know this kit will only "slam" the car to make sure I wantd that..

I'd like to reword this in a more professional way. I don't think the services I'm looking for are in line with the ones MANN prefers to offer.

I'm guessing you didn't read my original post. That's the WRONG part of Cali.
