So I'm THIS close to buying a 3" lift from Toytec, 5100s with AALs. I know what the parts will cost but I am considering having a local independent shop do the install. There is a shop that I thought would be reputable nearby so I went by to get a quote on installation. They "do not install any customer supplied parts and why do you need to change shocks and springs on a brand new truck anyway?"
This going on during the week when my state legislature is discussing the "Right to repair" bill which would force dealers to release technical knowledge and computer codes not usually available to private shops. You would think they would want a new customer. Here I am trying to give the little guy some business and they say "no thanks". Now I'm looking for a different shop or may end up DIYing the job.
Anyone else have this problem? I've installed many customer supplied items in my trade over the years and honor an installation warranty on my work. Problems with the parts are the responsibility of the customer and I make it clear that that is the case.
