    Looking for a reputable, honest and affordable shop to install Eibach lowering springs and a few other accessories on my 2015 Ford Mustang.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    I don't really look into shops as I usually do my own work but I have heard great things about Boost Controlled Performance. They do all sorts of cars and modifications.

    Well Tanna THE place to take your Mustang in Metro Detroit is Livernois Motorsports. They are a big name in tuning domestics and just happen to be local.

    Other local shop is Oakos, they are more Suby focused but they are nice guys and could do your spring install:

    Actually, I bought a tuner for my Mustang at Livernois couple of months ago. It's a great shop and the staff is very helpful. I have a Roush front fascia and want to install the 50th anniversary insert from my stock grille onto the Roush grille along with a TREX grille in the lower portion of the Roush fascia. Not sure if this is something Livernois can accommodate....my only issue with Livernois is they're quite pricey when it comes to labor. I had inquired about purchasing a thermostat however, labor on that is a little over $100.00 while the part costs about $63.00 and I had inquired about Livernois changing the spark plugs labor alone was over $200.00.

    It is definitely something that we can do, but i would have to get you in contact with Steve for availability and pricing.

    As for the thermostat, I am sure that your $100 included labor, coolant and shop supplies...that's normal. But the $200 labor on spark plugs alone I would have to see to believe. That is ~3 hours of labor. We actually have some of the lowest labor rates in the universe, half of what your dealership is and we have not raised our hourly labor rate in over 5 years!

    Any reputable shop that is charging you less than $100/hr is treating you well these days. I was a Ford dealer tech for a long time, I'm now up here for a new job and Livernois would be one of the first places I would stop if I need anything done I can't do myself at home.
