Local Spring install? Northern VA?

Anyone know of a good spot I can take my Smart Fortwo Cabriolet to install some H&R springs?

Now what's funny is, I drove to Tampa 2 separate times when I was in Ft Lauderdale.

1 was to go pick up parts for my 93 Acura Legend coupe.
The other was to go see the ALCS Game 7 to see either my Red Sox go to the World Series or see my buddy Carlos Peña make it to the world series.

But I need a local install .

Try your local smart center?

This may seem a bit obvious, but have you asked your local smart center what they would charge for your spring replacement?

Tyson's Corner smart center
smart service rep
Jim Osborn 703-564-6034

there is also the Alexandria smart center (don't know the number)

Can't hurt to ask, at least you will have a "ballpark" figure to shop around to other places?

On Line Spring Replacement

Check out Youtube-something like smart car front/rear spring replacement. Alert some local mechanics who work on Japanese models-they may want to take it on to increase their learning curve.
