    I'm located in Birmingham, AL.

    Is there any reputable shops that will install Adj. 5100's with AAL's for a decent price. Most offroad shops up here charge too high.



    Would anyone be intrested in helping install it with me. I would like to learn myself but don't have the right tools. I would pay for beer/lunch. :)

    Where could I take the coils to get compressed?



    Thanks,
    Scott

    You can take the coils to any shock/suspension shop once you have the top mounts off. Birmingham is like 4 hours away from me or I'd help ya out with it.

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    I'm not sure of 1st gens, but do you even need to take apart the stock shock? i thought the billys were just put in. if thats the case, try it yourself. I'd come help.

    Yeah you have to take the whole coil off... compress the coils and then replace the struts. If you try to do it yourself without the knowledge, it can be extremely dangerous!
