    Don't do it! Steep is right. Check other local shops and stay away from Stealership.

    That pisses me off how badly some people get gouged on stuff like that. A lof of people don't know better and get hamered. I'd do it myself but if you don't have the time, knowledge or tools then find a local shop.

    its super easy to do yourself. spend that 800 on actual parts for your truck and DIY!

    alignments are usually about 70 bucks though, thats the ony thing I cant do in the driveway without a few basic hand tools. you can take your struts out and take them somewhere that has a spring compressor and ive heard people getting the shocks swapped out for like 40 bucks or so

    8 hours of shop labor passes the 'sniff test' for me for full suspension install including upper control arms. I wouldn't call it a 'bargain' but I wouldn't call it a 'raping' either.

    especk - who did your work? That's a really good price. If you're happy with them you should be recommending that place to everyone in sac and norcal.

    All that being said - strongly consider investing in the tools and manuals, and research to do the job yourself! One of the tenets of off-road driving is self-sufficiency. You can't just call AAA. If you break your junk on the trail, you want to have the skillz to fix it!

    I got it all done at 'Norcal Muffler and Truck' in Stockton. They have done ALL the work to my truck - everything on my build page was done by them. They are the best damn business I've ever worked with.

    I did my own last weekend. All it cost me was lunch for my brother and buddy who helped. And I have a much better understanding of how the parts work together. Glad I did it.

    I would at least ask them for a "lube" job too, cause at that price you're taking it up the ass!
