MINI Owner changes Shocks and Springs at Self Serve Garage

30/03/11 COMMENTS 0

This customer with Self Serve Garage brought his 2005 MINI Cooper S in to change the shocks and springs.  He noted:

A stock height MINI will fit over the scissor lift, but there will be a clearance of about 1/2″ at the front lift pads. The rear pads won’t be on the lift, but the frame rides on the lift, so it’s still quite safe when you lift.

The total job took about 5.5 hours, but was about 25% the cost when compared to taking everything to a retail shop, for almost the same length of time.  Significant savings, and only a few hours out of his Saturday.

He smiled knowing he saved money by renting a bay at Self Serve Garage and making his own repairs.
