    I purchased some 5100s from DSM and they are set to arrive tomorrow. Kudos for fast shipping from DSM, they are great to deal with, and thanks TW for recommending them. I'm trying to find a place to install them that won't charge me an arm and a leg. I have absolutely no mechanicing skills and I don't have the tools anyway. The prices I've gotten so far range from 250 just for the install to 350 for the install/allignment. It seems like it shouldn't take 2-2.5 hours to install these. Does anyone know of a reputable place near St. Cloud/Orlando area. Thanks guys.

    are they swapping over coils from stock to 5100's or did you buy 5100's with coils already installed?

    Tire Kingdom wanted $400 I think to install my OME 885s with stock shocks.

    I'll wait till I have all the parts for my lift and install it all myself. It would be cheaper to pay someone to just compress the coil and install the shock and do everything else myself.

    I've got kings front and rear, with TC uca's, and 3inch all pro leafs coming in next week and would also like a reputable place to install it. What is a good price to pay, and who can do it?

    Just my 2 cents, but if you have no mechanical ability, how can you judge how long it should take? For just a normal customer I would be quoting 3 hrs labor to do the fronts unless you bought them preassembled with new coils. Otherwise you have to take them off the truck and compress the springs to swap out all the components.

    seems ok to me, my comment was more pointed to the OP. But i am thinking you are doing ok for that price.

    Coil overs on the front, regular shocks in the rear? And complete leaf pack?
