    Hi

    is it easy to change a set of front springs on my e46 or should i leave to the professionals and take it to the garage?

    how much do u think a garage will charge for replacing the front springs only?

    thanks

    It's easy enough to do mate

    A garage will charge you around 100 - 150 quid I would imagine

    We can talk you through it on here

    Do you have a jack, axle stands, wheel brace, spring compressors and basic tool kit?

    axle stands £15 a pair
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Professional-g...3A1%7C294%3A50
    Spring compressors £10 a pair

    basic toolkit iro £25

    plus the satisfaction of doing it yourself and you will have the tools left over for any other jobs
