Depends, if it's just a tire place, probably not, if they're a full service garage then yes. You'd be best served to call them and ask if they'd do the install rather than us speculating on what an unknown shop would be willing to take on...

Install isn't that hard, compressing the spring is the worst part (unless you get Eibachs and 5100's and buy them pre-assembled)

I dont want to hijack this thread, but since we are talking about leveling tacomas. When I get my 2nd Gen Tacoma Double cab Long bed, and I am looking to level it out, would it be best to use the 5100's or get a Readylift leveling kit? Do the 5100's really stiffen up the ride that much? And by reading some posts on here, the 1.75 is the hight to level off the front at. And when purchasing the 5100's I am assuming I am going to need new springs. What would be the best spring to use?

from what i've learned you can use your stock springs although buying new springs wouldnt hurt. And as far as readylift leveling kits, ive heard nothing but bad things, i was gonna do that from the beginning til i got on here and did research and found there is a world of difference between readylift and the 5100s. I just ordered my 5100s from downsouthmotorsports.com and they will be here next week =D

Buy some ome coils with em, you wont have such a noticable improvement if you stay with the stock coils.
also it will be less work, especially when you decide you want new coils you wont have to do it again,
because its a pain in the ass.
