    Hey guys
    I'm looking at installing bilstein 6112/5160s with an add a leaf next month, just want a nice 2 in lift. I have no tools and limited mechanics experience. Would anyone who is mechanically inclined be interested in helping me out and making a few hundred bucks?? I'm from Tacoma, don't mind a little drive. Just need someone competent. Lol.

    If you guys got a spot I can give y'all a hand. I got all the tools minus the Jack and Jack stands.
    I just did my suspension. Gutted all the old parts for new upgraded ones.

    Clamshell bushing is kind of a mother to install. Gotta take the whole hub assembly off. Than top off the fluid. If you are replacing the rack and pinion bushings that will also be a pain in the ass.. you'll most likely need a new bolt. Also if you do uca's it'll be easier to get 2 new bolts for that as well.

    Sounds good. Looks like you have the the JBA UCA. Did you DIY that? Any issues with the long bolt?
    I may wait until March and have a garage at my house we can work in. I have a jack and 4x 2.5 Ton jack stands, along with the ECGS removal tool and various hand tools.

    I'm looking to install F/R shocks, Rear AAL, ECGS bushing/new seal and UCA. Anything else you can think of?

    Yeah I have the jba high castor uca. The bolts are easier to cut then re-orient new bolts.

    I have the removal tool as well. My brother in law actually removed it but he ended up grinding down one of the edges to get it seat Properly.

    I installed
    -jba high castor uca (new bolts)
    -moog lca
    -spc bolts
    -cv axles / seals /clamshell bushing.
    -wheel hub assembly
    -inner/outter tie rods
    -energy suspension; sway bar, rack and pinion
    - stabilizer link
    - ome884 paired with 5100s set at .85
    -zip tie mod on steering column.

    I haven't done leaf springs before but can't be to difficult. I YouTubed all the videos and installed all by myself. I have diagrams for each part with proper torque specs.
    Everything is pretty straight forward. As long as you have the right parts, spare bolts,time and patience it will go smoothly. I learned the hard way

    Jason do you have a place we can work on it? I have all the tools needed but nowhere to work on it. You can pay me in beer.

    I don't have a ECGS removal tool, maybe we can borrow one

    I'd be game to help but looks like theres a lot of hands! I have to do mine too soon. Have you looked at those shop space with lift rentals? They're a bit pricy, like 30-50 an hour but good if dont have anything at all

    Hey @Jasonstacoma I have a two car garage in Tacoma with a workshop and probabaly any tool that we could need to get that suspension gear on. I'm currently un the middle of redoing my rear end of my truck and doing some custom shock mounts and frame reinforcements but the garage should be free soon. Just shoot me a PM or something, would love to help. I wish I had the help when I had no space to do my mods. Its painful to just see the new parts sitting on the floor :(
