    Hello,
    Looking to get my 5100's and an AAL installed. Live in Tucson Arizona and I don't know of a good shop to install them. Any Ideas out there?

    Are you mechanically inclined?....cause if so you can do them yourself...it's not that hard.

    I'm pretty ignorant but when it comes to this type of stuff. I will take a look at the instructions when I get them and see if it is something I want to tackle. It is a 1 year old truck so I just don't want to mess it up. I also have budgeted in the install. I have the money but just need a good place to take it.

    You could take out the fronts yourself and have the springs compressed if you dont feel comfortable using a spring compressor. Try Dan's Toy Shop @ 620-1957. A little pricey but they do good work. Remember to get it re-aligned too.

    Oh I have confidence you know what your doing. But I gotta make the money first to do all the stuff I want to do. I'm looking for black steelies (16"), Toytec 3" lift, and the 5100s. That is EXPENSIVE

    wheelers black 16 inch steelies are $78 a piece. i found my black steelies on ebay for $100 for 5 of them. i picked them up locally, so that saved me $100 also.

    the 5100's....i got from dsm on ebay, and i got all 4 for $295. check on ebay bro......you can find some sweet deals man!!
