    do you guys think this is a good price. I pinged Restylers in Fort Walton Beach, Fl about installing the OME Kit, they said they can get the full kit and do the install for $1050 w/alignment or $350 if I bought the kit somewhere else. Do you guys think this is a good deal. I don't have the space or tools to do this myself.

    I just paid quite a bit more for my lift+install (UCAs included), so I say go for it!

    This would be my question too (What kind of rear lift primarily). Plus you probably should look at buying UCAs on top of that.

    If you are AF an in FWB that means you should be able to get to the Auto Hobby Shop and pay 10% of what they are asking for labor costs....Just an idea.

    Thanks for all the replies, they said it's the exact same kit from Toytec (they get it cheaper because of business discount?), with top plate spacers and 2" AALs (I may skip the spacers as I don't want to spend the extra $400+ for UCAs). They make their money off the install mostly. I am still deployed and am wanting to do this when I get back. Brunes, thanks for the suggestion of taking it on base but, I will be spending that time with the wife while they install it for me.

    thebigk,

    I know what you mean. I replaced the exhaust manifold on my wife's civic, I thought it was going to be a 2 hr job at most, 7 hrs later!!!! I think this is a good price for kit and install.
