Newbie question in AZ.

Just got a new Prerunner double cab and am looking to raise/level the front with some bilstein 5100's. Can anyone recommend a shop who could do the install and alignment?

Thanks

We just had a mod day. What part of Phoenix are you in? I know sierra expeditions in Tempe/Mesa does good work with suspension installs.

The install is easy to do yourself...just need a coil compressor and some hand tools


But yeah, Sierra Expeditions is where I'd go

Just an FYI the spring compressor from Vatozone doesn't fit very well. Tried to do Joshes top plate spacer (needed longer bolts) this weekend and it was a nightmare to get it to fit. He took it into a shop and they hooked him up.

Thanks for the input. I am in Central Phoenix, and right now I just wanted to raise the front of the truck 1.75 inches to level it with the back, so I thought I would go with the Bilstein 5100 in the front and for now, just leave the back as is. Any ideas what Sierra Expeditions would charge just to do this. I also understand that a realignment will also need to be done. Do they do this as well? Thanks again.

Yeah.. I took it to Napa.. and had them compress, install the extended studs and put the spring back on.. it literally cost me a 12 pack of beer. Dude was pretty cool and even had a first Gen single cab 4x4 with a ton of armor and custom rack and bumpers.

He isn't joking, the guy took a 12 pack of bud light as payment. Now that's a deal!
