    Ok so i just called my local lifting shop and asked them how much it would be to install a lift kit from bigbobsgarage.com pn: 422755L-AAL. I told them i would have the kit and parts for them all they would have to do is install it and do an alignment and they quoted me around $300 for just the installation and another $100 or so for the alignment!

    Is that normal? Ill be paying more for the installation than the whole kit x2 that seems alittle insane to me but idk im still kinda new to this :(

    Please let me know if you have any info

    Thanks
    Wes

    if its a front and rear you could get away with closer to 225ish with the alignment 65-75 bucks so otd for everything closer to 300 than 400

    4 wheel sucks. there are numerous posts on the forum for shitty installs and poor knowledge and customer service

    like i said above. i see no reason why it should be more than 300 maybe 350 with the alignment....why not do the install yourself and save the coin?

    Do it yourself if you have basic mechanical knowledge and tools.

    When I bought my lift I asked 4 Wheel Parts what they would charge to install and they wanted $700!!! (with alignment) it would have been even more if I would have had them also install the upper control arms.

    x2. Between $300 to $400 sounds about right.

    If you live closer, I could have helped you. All you need to pay for is the alignment.

    Hopefully some one in your area can help.

    The most expensive and reputable place around here wanted $400+alignment. I have a friend doing it for about $300 at his shop with alignment.
