My brother got the springs on his Maverick/Patrol re-set (they had sagged) for $55 each, but that was at trade price.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

OK... I guess 4WD springs are more expensive - but thats more than you pay for new springs!!!!!

Guys you sure it costs that much to re-set springs. I'm assuming you guys are talking about coil springs, cause it definitly cost alot more than that to reset leafs.

Yep, I am talking about coils.

Also note that I said the $55 per pair was at mates rates.

This works to reset sagged springs to their normal height. I dont if it would work to lower springs.

I say you'd be better off getting new springs altogether, its not that much more.

just a question.... why do you want to reset the springs?

Its safer and quicker to get new springs.

When you reset srings, your car is off the road for 2 days.

When you get new springs, your car is off the road for 2 hours.

New springs are only $90 a pair.
