    I'm getting jerked around pretty good on trying to have my lift installed..

    I'm wondering if anyone could estimate how long it should take a competent mechanic to install the following:

    5100s and Eibach coils.. ring has to be moved to .85, and attached to the coils still.
    Top spacers,

    Rear shocks and Dakar leafs.



    I would love to do it myself, but I'm busy and lack tools... feel free to visit if you want to help tho.

    thanks

    Yeah 2 to 4 hours depending on the age of the truck. Rusted bolts take a wile sometimes.

    Interesting, no shop has said less than four hours, which raised suspicion to begin with. Talked to three shops all said 4-6 hours. one guy quoted me $600.. nope.

    Theres only like five tacomas in this town so I doubt they are too experienced with the vehicle.

    Sounds like my best bet may be to call the guy with the "out of work experienced mechanic" ad in the paper, and stand next to him and learn about my truck and make sure he isnt screwing everything up.
