Exclamation Estimate on a lift install?

Just trying to guess about how much i would end up needing to save for a total lift. I see the lift i want is 699.99(OME 3" lift) then im not sure whether i need UCA's or what else is needed but my guess is installing would run about 500 bucks let me know if im close or your best quess.

ya toytec would obviously be better. but depends on how much ur going to use ur truck.

to be honest i dont know much about UCA'S either. replacing them would probably would probably be better for the trucks wear and tear im assuming. but i havent had any problems so far.

I did my OME lift myself and it was pretty basic. I picked up a pair of spring compressors for 15 bucks at a local used tool store. It took about 4-5 hours to do the job. I did everything myself besides installing the assembled coils/shocks back on the truck.

Are you crazy? Pay for a lift install.

I agree with Tacoma831 completely. I did my own OME lift earlier this year and it took me 1 day. I'd do yours with you if you lived near me.. it's really pretty easy if you don't mind getting dirty.

You just need basic tools (you could buy those at Sears - all the tools you'd need for under $100) Also, I'd recommend having the front shocks and springs pre-assembled for you because that does require a press. I got my OME setup at Wheelers and they did it pretty reasonably for me.. they even popped in the 5mm spacer for the drivers side.

So anyway, if you don't want to do it yourself that's cool. But don't get soaked paying someone to do it. I'd say $300 - $500 sounds fair for a shop to do it.

Suggestion for you: Try this. Go down to a local community college where they teach automotive. Ask them how much to have the students do the work. I'll bet they could hook you up with some needy students that love doing that sort of work and would appreciate a crisp $100 bill for their labor.

Hey, I'm speaking from experience. I work at a community college and there really are some great guys in the auto program.. some of ours started working on peoples cars for free, they call themselves "Gods Garage" and help out down and out folks that need a little auto work.

A torque wrench is something useful to have around, I would recommend investing in one. I make good use of mine.
