    I was quoted $770 out the door from a local shop to install 5100's on all fours with a 2.5", full length AAL and alignment. I am purchasing the 5100's and AAL from them. Does that sound reasonable to all of you that have a similar setup? Thanks in advance.

    I certainly don't think they're doing you any favors! Others can chime in but that sounds freakin expensive to me. The alignment is around $100 in itself which leaves them $670 in labor just to install.

    Keep in mind that it includes the price of the 5100's and AAL though. If that makes it any better.

    That makes sense then, my bad, I misread the first post. I was going to question you last post when you said it was fair! Parts included sounds alright. :eek:

    I did mine myself, but when I was first contemplating it I phoned some places to get quotes... they ranged from $450-700 Canadian just for the install and alignment. That is why I did it myself...

    HELL NO THATS TOO MUCH! install from any shop should be no more than 300 bucks. I paid that once and will never pay for someone to install something so simple for me ever again!

    EDIT: sorry did not read the WHOLE thread. 770 for everything is not that bad! But you can still save a lot installing yourself!

    DSM 5100 = 275 ish
    Toytec aal = 80 bucks
    Alignemnt = 75 bucks

    Total for parts = 430 which means you can in theory, pay for you lift by simply installing yourself!

    Thanks for the insight fellas. I would like to install it myself however a recent shoulder surgery prohibits that. Plus, I've got another $100 bucks on top of parts for tools and tool rentals. Not to mention a whole day spent because my buddies can't turn a door knob let alone a wrench and I don't want them getting near my truck.
