update: i'm getting new springs at whiteline sometime soon. $105.50 for springs and $50 labour. MRT gave me a quote as well, but they're expensive as hell! i'm just waiting for bob to get back to me with a date. btw, they can't do more than 10-15 mm as the car's pretty low as it is... oh well! 1/2 inch will do me fine...
Go and speak to Mick at Midas (you know which one)... he will be able to give you a better price.
Oh - and when you are there... have a look at the damage on the floor on the 1st bay (the one on the left)... was backing my car up onto the hoist, and bottomed out... got stuck!!!
back wheels where spinning... and dragged my car a good 6 inches sideways before I got enough grip to get me moving again..... left a couple deep scratches, and 2 wide rubber marks.
