I sent him a message on Facebook today and he wanted me to come in for the most accurate quote.
Oh wow, that's actually the place I've been looking at. And it's the same guy that's working on the LS in the pictures I posted on the first page of this thread. I found out about the place from this guy's thread a while back. Anyway, from the looks of it he does good work.

Group buy anyone?

Re: Cutting your strut towers yay or nay?

Based on what I've heard, his pricing is quite fair and probably doesn't require a group buy haha. Either way though I'd be stoked to have that kind of quality done relatively quickly, painlessly, and for a good rate.

you can see the change from the 3rd pic to the 4th, see that new lump in front of the tower? i assume he did all that work only to realize that with how low he is, he still heard a little clanking which was the side of the arm hitting the edge of the tower, which probably resulted in that new lump in front.

Vimal, I was under the car the other day and yeah, it's necessary. There's a bracket there or something do the arm has a bulging portion.

Re: Cutting your strut towers yay or nay?

I gave Jason Noren a call today and surprisingly, he said he would only charge about $100 for the strut tower mod! zOMGGGG I also gave him a heads up that a couple of Accords on here might be interested too.

He told me to give him a call later on today to maybe set up an appointment for tomorrow. Holla if you're interested!

Can't wait to get rid of this damn knocking. 10 fwy sucks a$$.

Re: Cutting your strut towers yay or nay?

DUUUUUUUUUUUDE. So ****ing cheap. Does that include the box to cover up the holes? Or is that just to cut them to spec?

I am so down to do that.

Wordd. I'm not too sure if it's $100 for the whole job, seems a little too good to be true. Maybe it's just to cut them. I called back around 4PM a couple of times but he never answered. Hopefully it's around $100 for the whole job though!

I'm going to give him another call in the morning and see what's up.
