    I'm in Pa now but live in NJ, maybe hour from Long Island. Just finishing installing toytec lift myself , 884 or 885 spring, don't remember, and half inch spacer in front, with the add a leaf in the back. Love the lift, not such a hard install, alignment was harder. When you find a shop ask around and see if they also do good alignments. I got everything perfect except for my camber because I ran out of adjustments.

    Only problem that I had was one of the eccentric nuts rusted into the plastic bushing on the bottom front lower control arm.

    If you run into something abnormally complicated or need something custom built, I recommend Carroll's Rod & Racecraft in Spotswood, NJ. It's a fabrication shop rather than a place for installations, but if you're interested I can put you in touch with them.

    They built my truck and modified SilverSeven's body mounts to clear his 35" tires. :thumbsup:

    Just to give you a point of reference, in about an hour and half I was able to completely tear down the driver's side front suspension with simple hand tools.

    Your lift install will require a fraction of that work. At least shop around a little more if you're set on not trying the project yourself. I'd hate to see you waste cash that could be put towards other mods.

    The shop has probably never worked on one of these trucks and is trying to cover itself in case it's complicated. It's not.
