ooOO. I didn't know you were in Vegas! I'm in town for SEMA!

Unfortunately.. I have no idea. I do know I paid roughly $150 labor total to have mine installed.

I don't know of any places in Vegas, but here in Austin I paid 420.00 with alignment. A little more than what maybe a Brake Specialists + type of place would have charged, but I went back to the shop that I've taken all my previous cars/trucks to have suspension work done just b/c i know the people, and trust their work.

so how is the suspension? would you need a camber kit or anything?

The suspension rides great, I do wish the drop in the front were a bit more - but it does look better to me than factory height. No camber kit needed unless you went super aggressive on the offset + width of your aftermarket wheels / tires. I don't think one exists and I don't know if a kit for a Scion TC would work...

I wish a camber kit existed. Who normally makes them for Japanese vehicles?

SEMA was awesome. I got placed RIGHT IN front of all the action!!!!

This was, of course, after not being able to stage for 2 days, being told there was no more room even though I pre-registered months ago, and having a flat tire the DAY of staging. I ended up staging on Tuesday, AN HOUR before the show was to be opened for admission. Talk about crunch time!

I pulled out my car today, a day early to avoid the mess of Friday roll-out. This was between the North and Central Halls, so EVERYONE had to walk by this area in order to leave the convention center. YAY. Got some interesting comments from various people. There were definitely a couple hundred cars staged outside and inside. INSANE!

HOLY! Are you kidding? :eek: I too paid $150 for the install, plus $70 for an alignment. Shop around.
