    Im looking into to buying a 3" toytec lift with ome front coils and rear aal's, the problem is one of the local off road shops want to charge about 260$ for install and idk seems to be to much for that. let me know if you think that is a reasonable price or if i am gonna get ripped off.
    If there is anyone near roswell,GA that is willing to help me install this myself that would be awesome!

    I guess thats not bad for installation fees, how much does the lift cost though?

    I work in norcross, live in the highlands, could possibly give you an extra pair of hands. Ive never installed one, but i dont really see how it could be that hard. I believe with a spring compressor it shouldnt bee that hard. PM me if your still looking for help, or want it

    You can bring it to my house if you want. I have all the tools we would need to do it: Spring Compressor, Air tools, Jacks, Jack stands, Etc. Etc. Etc.

    I have done quite a bit of wrenching in my lifetime so I can help.

    I live in Canton. Can take 140 (Hickory Flat) or Hwy 20 to get to my house. About 20-30 minute drive from Roswell.

    It is pretty easy to install if you have basic tools. I did my 5100's by myself and used spring compressors from autozone. Some people say those spring compressors are too weak so i used 3 instead of 2 to be safe,

    I need to find the time to pull mine off and reset them to 2.5" so I can fit some 285's......but right now its too cold for me to be wrenching outside.

    Maybe after I redo mine :wink:

    oh man i used autozone spring compressors too!!! if you want to save some time just get the springs compressed and the shock assambled at a shop (this is only if you're using aftermarket coils as well) then take the shock assemblies home and its only a matter of turning some bolts (slight euphimism) :rolleyes:
