Sacramento Shop to install 5100's?

Hey guys, anyone know a shop in sacramento that can put my billy 5100s in? I have always done work myself, I just don't trust my McPherson compressors anymore. Nearly took my face off installing my H&Rs on my BMW. I called major Les Scwab and they will only install their own products.
Or anyone willing to meet up and work on em if you've got a better set of compressors?

Thanks!

I didn't even use a compressor when installing the h&r springs and billy's on my old bmw when i had it. Just jack up, disco bolts and lower jack. Easy peasy.

I borrowed a spring compressor from Oriely's one time. They had a pin that would lock the hooks on the spring. Seemed pretty secure, no real way for it to go flying. Did a couple spring swaps that way.

Thanks bud, I appreciate the offer! I was able to do it on my own last weekend. Loving them so far! I always forget that bases have the stalls you can rent. I've always lived off post.

I have no skills and want to get Billys installed in Sac too. Is $250 with an alignment a good deal?

It's fair. You figure about $75 for alignment and $175 for labor about 2-4 hours of labor so like $43-$87 per hour for labor.

Well it looks like I could do the rears myself, so it would be $200 to not mess with the fronts plus an alignment. I still have a few months to decide as I'm waiting to get new tires and do it all at the same time. Thanks for the info.

That doesn't sound like too bad of a deal at all.

Thanks bro, how's life? Growin the 'stache back? Which LED bar did you mount behind your grille?

I got an N Fab bar... but i think I'm going to sell it and just mount an LED bar behind my Grillcraft. I like the clean look of nothing in front of the bumper.
