    I just purchased the Toytec OME kit with the Bilstein 5100's instead of the OME shocks. The kit comes with the 885 coils and AAL (non TSB)for the back. I called a local shop and they want $400 to install everything including an alignment and taxes. I thought that sounded a little high but I wasn't sure. The shop is close to me and that has some value, what is everyone else having to pay?

    doesnt sound bad.u figure a allignment is around a $100,so $300 for labor at 4 to 8 hrs.not bad.but if u can do it,go for it.really nothing to it if u have any machanical ability and the tools.good luck.

    If you want to get your hands dirty and learn something, I JUST installed my OME lift myself today, so we could meetup sometime and I'll help you install it! I've got all the tools to do it.

    oh, and it'll be easier for you being a 4x2, because we won't have to worry about the sway bar being in the way, and that's a bitch to get off, without taking off the skid plate.

    PM me if you want to meetup.

    That's about what I paid when I had mine done. I'd take the locals up on their offer to help you do it yourself. It doesn't look terribly hard and you can save a bundle. You'll still need the alignment though.
