I wouldn't bother having a shop install it if you are decent with tools and following directions. It's a very easy job and shouldn't take more than a day.

i charge $100 if someone just asks me to lower their car and they provide the parts....if they order the parts thru me, i charge them like $70....and they normally save money on the springs and struts thru me too....so they can save upwards of $50 just by buying and installing thru me

guy lowering your car is like the easiest thing you can do next to changing oil, installing an intake or washing your car. hardest part is driving to a shop to have your stock springs removed and replacing it with the lowering spring. I hope you do it yourself, its real easy. get a haynes or a Honda Repair Manual and tackle it yourself. But remember not to remove the stock springs without a spring compressor as it will spring back and might hurt you badly or potentially fataly damage you. if you take your stock spring/stut assembly to a shop they'll replace your stock springs with your lowering springs for less than $20 and it'll take less than 5 minutes for them.

it's a one hour job and will take no more than $100 to do...just keep looking around.

or save yourself $100 and do it yourself.

i'd do it yourself. If its your first time doing something like this...take your time, take a look at it first, come up with a plan of sequence then do it. The sequence of removal is pretty important to make it a quick job. Just remember, during removal, the top of the shock assembly will be the last thing unbolted and during installation it will be the first thing bolted. If you need any help there are plenty of people here that do their own work and will be able to help you.

Lowering my car costs me about an hour and $0.

But, seriously, it's nothing to difficult to install springs if you have the tools. Go with what 98vtec said. And be careful with compressed springs.
