    I'm looking for descent shop to get my lift installed in or near Elko County but the problem is I have all the parts already and all the places I call say they don't do outside work. It's a liability issue they say which I can understand. Can any one help me out?:confused:

    Any thoughts on attempting it yourself? Will a full day, an extra set of helping hands, and some help from TW, i'm willing to bet you can complete this task :D

    If you got a socket set and some wrenches you'll be fine. You'll also need some Clamps to do the AAL. Did you get coilovers, or just front coils?

    the other hassle for you will probably be finding someone to put the coils on the 5100's for the front. other than that, it's all cake.

    Yah, you need spring compressors. Even if you have these tools it's a HUGE pain in the ass to tackle. I tried it myself and said F* it after doing one side. I took the other side to my buddys shop and had him do it for me. lol

    Hmmm. I wonder if I just took it to a shop if they could do it for me? Hey how do you take off that clip around the front 5100's to adjust the height?

    You could probably take it to a shop maybe offer one of the mechanics a couple bucks or a 6 pack to assemble them for you. I'm not sure what the easiest way to take that clip off would be. I left mine on the lowest setting. You shouldn't have to adjust yours either..

    Um I think mine are on the 3rd section or 2nd section whatever way you want to look at it. Not for sure though. So if someone agrees to assemble those, do they have to do any adjusting on-the-spot, or are they good to go?

    Just make sure the clip is on the lowest / stock setting. other than that they should be ready to assemble

    Well I might be in luck! Talked to a guy I know today and says he's got a buddy that owns a shop that does all kinds of work. I'm going to give him a call tomorrow or the day after to see what he's got to say!;)

    Just talked to the guy and he said around $600 for everything. Front coils, rear AAL's, swap with 5100's all around, UCA's, wheels and tires balanced and mounted, and the final alignment after the lifts complete. What do you guys think?:confused:

    I would do the work myself and save myself $600, IMHO!

    ...except the tires, wheels, alignment of course..
