I bought the lift, hope I didn't screw up!

The item description says I got a Ready Lift leveling kit with a 1" Lift Block Kit W/U-Bolts - Rear, and Front end alignment

Cost around 700 dollars.

700 for a leveling kit and blocks? seems expensive. Why not just 5100s and an aal to raise a bit and level it out with smoother ride.

That

I would return or cancel that and do Billies and an AAL. Better and CHEAPER.

Sorry dude we're not trying to be dicks or burst your bubble. Looking out for you is all. Try and cancel that order and let us know what kind of lift you thinking of getting.

This is a good source to come for input on everything. Even pricing before you pull the trigger on buying.

They(Woodys) will only install their own products due to "liability" issues, so that was the only way to go for me, the Toyota dealership was the only other option and they wanted over a grand for it.

There is a huge TX crowd here in TW. Buy the Billy 5100s yourself, get an AAL for the rear, and I am sure some of the guys will help you install over a case of beer.

Then you can take it to a shop to get it aligned.

Alright, I'll try and cancel the order, going to keep my fingers crossed if they'll let me do that. They did try to charge me 600 dollars just for a westin brush guard with installation, and I said no to that knowing it's super easy to install and it will only cost me 320 bucks on amazon.

If they give you shit, which they really shouldn't if you just placed the order, tell them you just found out you knocked your girlfriend up and need the money. They will probably feel bad for you and cancel. But I highly doubt they'll give you any trouble to begin with.

My aal install was one of the first "real" (if you even want to call it that) wrenching that I've done on my truck. This was after a shop installed aal and then a block. Had all the tools already, all I needed was a jack and some stands.. I'm glad I did it myself, but was pissed that I paid some shop money for the other installs..

Hahaha I actually have no clue about suspensions. I just researched some shit and recently ordered the front billy 5100s. My truck is at the dealership right now seeing if it "qualifies" for the rear spring TSB.

About the lies.... guilty as charged

I just don't think a guy can refuse to give another guy a refund right after he finds out he knocked a girl up.

Look on the vendors section to the left of the home page here. DSM. He sells them at a great price. Either buy all four or just the fronts which are the adjustable ones.
