Right so yeah my 18th was a few days ago and my mates got together and got my a set of FK coils for the baby. I was wondering how much would a normal mechanic charge to put these on as I got a quote for £180 but that was to get the top mounts too whereas im pretty sure i can use the old top mounts?

Anyone from northern ireland here know how to do it ?

If youve got coilies and are getting new top mounts don't have to worry about old ones coming apart, just take the whole lot out at once, put the new ones together off the car then shove em back in! But yeah like everyone's said your top mounts will most likely be useless now. The top of the old shock will have rusted on the thread at the top too making the nut difficult to remove, under your bonnet in the top corners you'll see a black plastic cap, remove it and you'll see what I mean.
