Question Installation price for lift?

I just purchased the Toytec OME kit with the Bilstein 5100's instead of the OME shocks. The kit comes with the 885 coils and AAL (non TSB)for the back. I called a local shop and they want $400 to install everything including an alignment and taxes. I thought that sounded a little high but I wasn't sure. The shop is close to me and that has some value, what is everyone else having to pay?

doesnt sound bad.u figure a allignment is around a $100,so $300 for labor at 4 to 8 hrs.not bad.but if u can do it,go for it.really nothing to it if u have any machanical ability and the tools.good luck.

Could be more like 300, try making them an offer, you'd be suprised these days.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

That's about what I paid when I had mine done. I'd take the locals up on their offer to help you do it yourself. It doesn't look terribly hard and you can save a bundle. You'll still need the alignment though.
