Can I go to a general auto shop to get these on or should I look for a performance shop?

First person to say do it yourself gets a swift one to the groin.

Pretty much any professional could install those with their eyes closed.
Spring and shock replacement is pretty much a basic, bread and butter job.

I would personally avoid going to "performance" shops... only because they tend to charge a performance price.
EG: My local Import Tuner Shop charges $120 for a 4 wheel alignment.
local Steering and Brake Shop: $50-$70

If you were installing fully adjustable coilovers, sure.. go to the the Performance Shop... they would have experience with the ins and outs of adjustment.

Truhart Springs/Struts/Shocks? Complete OEM Swap. Easy for a half-way decent mechanic.

It's a family sedan, not a track car.
