    What kind of lift are you looking at getting? You can install the stuff pretty easily yourself if you want to save some money.

    Seriously if you can unbolt stuff and bolt the new stuff back in, you're good to go. Check out Old Man Emu for a setup that should work for what you want without being crazy expensive. Billstein shocks are also nice.

    I think most sites can compress them for you for an extra 50 bucks or whatever. I think wheelers gave you that option if you get their OME setup. Could be wrong though.

    @blake995 - I'll give him a call, I work around port chicago ;), where is the shop at. thanx!

    @whiteboy - nothing extreme, maybe a 3" lift, I'm gonna need a new set of tires soon and just thought why not beef up from the stock tires.

    as for tools, I just have enough tools to change spark plugs :eek: and afraid to f-up my commuter. :pray::pray:
