    I got the rear leaf TSB, just ordered front billies from DSM, how much should it run me to have a shop install the billies up front at 1.75, and will I need an alignment? thanks for any input.

    p.s. also got an Injen power flow intake, Nfab light bar with some KC slimlights, Nfab wheel to wheel polished stainless steel nerf bar, just wanted to throw that out there because I am pretty excited.

    very fast
    with simple tools you can do this your self, it does not take a high IQ, you can rent the spring compressor and save ya some money to go towards more mods.

    Yes, you will need an alignment afterwards.

    I am having it done today. I called around and got prices anywhere from $280 at the local shop to $480 at the stealership!!!! That is just the install and alignment!!! Luckily, my friends work is slow so he is going to do it for me for $150.

    I paid $370.00 with an alignment included for an install of all four.

    I didn't price shop, just wanted to give the business to a small shop getting themselves established.

    I own a small business and I am kinda loyal that way.

    Plus...my mechanical aptitude is about .3 on a 10 scale :rolleyes:

    There are probably some nice guys here that would be glad to help install it for your wife since you are fighting for your country. I would do it for free if you were closer.

    EDIT: There are also some on here that are going to want to see pictures of her before they are willing to help.

    There are a couple of videos on Youtube of some shops doing an install with, I think Pro Comp shocks. Different brand but it'll show you exactly what you need to do.
