    Bahaha what a fuck tard.

    Why is it that most "shops" our auto parts stores hire people that do not know shit about what they are SUPPOSED to know.

    Went to a vato zone and wanted to order a bell housing for my tranny. The clerk asked why I would put a bell on my transmission....I nearly grabbed a pressure gauge near the counter and chucked it at him.

    you may want to actually compress the front shocks at a shop for safety reasons unless you actually know what you're doing, or know someone that knows what they're doing. you can rent a compressor at autozone i think, not sure on the price. im sure others will chime in :) goodluck

    Funny thing about that- He probably doesn't know this. But you might need to check the rear alignment after installing the lift.

    Mine was like .37 different from when I started and I got it's completely squared out by the time I was done.

    UCA's, rear springs, rear shocks, front shocks & coils, diff drop, extended brake lines, and an alignment for 870.

    I figure what $70 an hour for 10 hours, thats 700, $125 or so for an alignment and tax, for a total of 870. I would do it myself but that is a lot of work, I cant imagine a shop could make any money doing it less than that. That is a lot of work.
