Just switching out shocks and springs to performance ones.

My mechanic's got 30 years of experience, but has never done performance stuff.

performance shocks or not...the process is the same...so if he has ever changed a broken shock on a car he can do it...

But he should know that...so maybe you should take it elsewhere.

performance parts most often fit like OEM, the differences are internal.

everyones right its the same deal, only if your putting on lowering springs you dont need a spring compressor to change em over.

If I can do it you can too

make sure you have a new bolt before you go grinding the old one off.... or that someone can pick it up for you
