Strut installers in SoCal

Can anyone recommend a good shop in SoCal for installing new struts on the E? I live in Orange County (in Tustin). I would like to get it done for a good price and have quality work done. Any help would be great. My first quote was around $1200 and seemed pretty steep for front and rear.

If the price is right and the quality is good I will drive up to an hour or so.

He has done may struts but not on my E. The thing about Daryle is he is old skool meaning he is an actual "mechanic" and not just a do what the computer tells you to guy. He grew up on hot rods and such, not computers and ricers. That being said he also does that work if needed.

SGV area.

I had 4 oem honda assemblies and sway bar end links installed. They did a great job and would recommend them.
