I dont know of a shop near Miami, but when I installed stageones, several local shops refused to do so, unless they actually ordered the springs themselves.
Liability was my guess, so just a heads up to perhaps call around and ask before buying them and assuming a shop will do the install with owner supplied springs.

I already bought the springs in the dealer for the warranty but I don’t found some shop to make it

Buy a floor jack and a spring compresser and go for it. You can likely do it for less than what a shop would charge, and you get to keep the floor jack and spring tool. And, no one else will be touching your car. Win-win.

Cheers!

do you have tools and a place to work? air helps on the upper strut seat center bolt and the spring compressor, but not 100% necessary - ill be down that way next week and could bring my spring compressor and help you do it if you have the space and tools - are there any shops that rent space by the hour there? Why didnt you have the dealer do it?

Call Speedlogix and ask them for a referral - I bet they know all the HP shops in south florida. if your searching online, most independent shops that sell tires and do allignments also do undercar work - check reviews and try one of them - its really not a hard job

If you want to get it alligned after (most people do not) It will settle after a short drive - can be done the same day. Dont forget to post pics before and after!

Yes I know, I’m installing today my springs in performance shop and they told me to use the car 3-4 days before alignment so that the springs fit
What are you think this is correct?

@Pazo I live in Miami as well. There was a shop one of our local Dodge dealers recommended to me and does good work. It’s called Maranello Collision. They’re on US1 by Coral Gables. Give them a call and see if they can do this type of job, if not they can recommend you someone that can. 305-665-7556

I had mine aligned just after the springs were installed. My car did not "settle" at all. But waiting a few days won't hurt, as long as you have the time
