update

So i stopped into the local motor sports store(hedgehog motorsports) today. The guy working the counter tells me i only have 1 option to lift my truck (b.s. from what ive heard) Basically he tells me i can do a 2.5 inch in the front and a 1 inch in the rear and thats it. So i tell him, what about 5100's in the front and aal in the rear, and he tells me its not possible. To make a long story short, anyone know of any chain stores who do these types of lifts in the Jacksonville fl area so i can get an estimate. Also, he said it would be right at 800.00 to do that, Sounds like a rip off if u ask me, what do u guys think???

i think is total bs, there are tons of people running that lift in here??, and you might do it your self with a mechanical inclined buddy, from what ive heard its not that difficult to put a lift on....

if you have the right tools, a lift is not difficult, i advise you to make a mechanic friend if you plan to do lots of work to your truck. but its not hard, its just a suspension swap, need some tools for the job, but its not unmanagable. $200 / per spring / leaf to replace...thats nonsense

yes but you can get a spring compressor for yourself, when yoru done, sell it, even buy it used on ebay and then sell it to a friend. Also, like we did here in jersey, me n some freinds bought one, we all kinda chipped in and it floats between us. if yout rust yoru freinds, it works, we all mod our cars/trucks, so its kinda worth it, remember $$$ you spend on tools you can do the job again, youspend the same $$$$ on install, you never see it again. there is always someone who wants some tools
