Attn Denver Colorado Memebers

Is there anyone in denver colorado with a real mercedes Klann spring compressor or an outiside grabbing hazet or Klann compressor?

Person or shop? I got a quote for 7 hours to put the springs in with the mercedes compressor, I know thats a lie.

I live in AZ, I am trying to help out a Denver member get his car lowered with eibach springs. I know in Scottsdale and in phoenix, all the mercedes garages have the mercedes tool, and I have done my own springs, on my own with no compressor in 2 hours, and with the mercedes compressor in 1 hour.

Does anyone have a reputable shop that knows what they are doing? Anyone with over a quote of 2 hours doesnt know what they are doing.

Stu Ritter's shop is in Denver. I'd say they're pretty reputable ...

I believe Ritter sold his shop a couple of years ago. However I am sure it is still in good hands/

I talked to the shop about six months ago. I asked for Stu and the person answering the phone said he wasn't available. No mention that he did not own it anymore. His name is still on the building.

Ritters said $350 and they said the rears are harder because you have to take the lower arm off. I actually thought the rears are easier. I have done them in 10 minutes per side no spring compressor.

Oh well thats more reasonable, they ask to leave the car half a day.

Maybe they do have someone in denver that isnt a joke.
