how far in Nor Cal are we talking, i have done this lift to both of my first gens, its essentially the same with the 2nd. By myself i can get the entire lift done front and rear in about 4 hours, considering we have the right tools and stuff.

Post your request in the NorCal BS thread, one of the SJ guys might help you out, at some point us turkeys up here will get our act together and do another mod day, those are awesome to get stuff done with.

you really honestly dont need specialty tools i can do it with the tools inside my tool box all you need is the spring compressors and then just basic hand tools, air tools just makes the job done a hell of a lot faster haha. If you still need help i have no problem making the trip to Lodi to help ya out like i said before i have done them on first gens not on a second but they should be very similar. BTW you can rent a spring compressor from kragen or another auto part store for the price of the tool which is around $50-60 and within 48 hours bring the tool back and you get your money refunded. Another way to make the install waaaaay easier is to drive to Modesto, go to 4Wheel Parts and they will swap the springs onto the billys for you for cheap, i bought my first lift through them and they even did it for free haha

I got OEM top plates i'm selling. Price dropped to $25 for them. Make the 5100 install a lot easier as you don't need to take your old shocks apart for the top plates.

+1

That's what we did for my install. Made it a lot easier and less time consuming than Roberts install.


I frequent Tracy often, so I could be down to lend a hand.
