Thumbs up Good experience with a shop in NoVa!

Hey, neighbors! I don't post here often, but I thought I'd share a good experience in case it helps some of you.

I just replaced my rear springs, and I had bought the Crown OEM style. It's a DD, so no need for anything fancy. The Crown didn't come with the bushings installed, and the rears were a fight, but we won, and the fronts.... the fronts won. We (my son and I) could not get those buggers in. We even bent an 8 inch C-clamp in the process. We managed to oval one bushing in the process, and ding up one end. Not good.

I got on the phone looking for a 4WD shop in the area that could press them in. After striking out a few times, I called a shop (kicking myself because I can't remember which one!) that recommended Manassas Spring & Alignment. I called them, and they immediately and enthusiastically said, "No problem! Bring it over!"

I felt a little better about not being able to get it done at home when I saw them struggle with it using their professional gear, but not only did they get it done, they managed to salvage the bushing, too. And this did all this with a cheerful, 'can do' attitude.

Cost me 50 bucks (half hour labor), but it got me on the road again. That's a fair price for dinking with a, "you messed with it first" situation.


It's a hole in the wall 2 man shop in a rinky-dink industrial area. Don't seem to have a website. Very NOT impressive!

But if you are in need of anything related to springs, they'll treat you right.
