Sway bars install in Los Angeles

Hey guys,

Thinking about getting aftermarket sway bars. Local bimmer shop wants $560 to install, which I'm fairly certain is ridiculous. Anyone know of a local shop in LA that will install for less? And no, I can't install on my own. I live in a condo with a shared garage and our HOA does not allow residents to work on our cars. Thanks!!

Iíve had Freddyís garage do my front and rear install and uninstall. Place isnít an up scale shop but gets the job done. Freddy does it all himself and he got it done in about 1hour which is blazing fast. $200. Tell him Sylvester said wassup if you end up going.

Woah. Thanks for lookin out... Azusa is mad far from me (I'm in Marina del Rey). How much you think ikonic will charge?

I have a guy in the valley who does all my coilovers springs etc install for about 200.
Ikonic will probably charge u by the hr.
Downpipe on my 535i they charged me 180 or 200 i forget

Freddys garage sucks. They r unreliable and they are not that skilled.
Unreliable is a huge factor when i drive an hr just to get there. I have an appointment. I expext to be in and out not hang out and see if they can fit me in.

Interested in the info as well. I must say Freddy has been pretty fast for me, about 1 - 1.5 hours for the sway bars, and 2-3 hours for coilovers..

Great guy. Does coilover install by himself in less than 2hrs which is insane.
