    Gonna be ordering my Toytec 3" coil/aal kit and I can't find a place that works on 4x4's a/o suspensions
    I'm not really into or trust myself tearing apart my new truck

    can someone use their search skills and try and find a shop for me? I've tried and failed

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    thanks,
    Kyle (cleanTRD)

    Did you get my PM?

    It's really not that hard to install the stuff yourself with some help and some write-ups. And like I said, I could ask my husband and see if we could help you with it. Just gotta find the time in my schedule.
    Here's a couple writeups that I made from doing work in our garage.

    Other than that,
    The guy I used to use went out of business.
    Hoaks 4WD is out of business.

    The place I go now for inspections is in Salunga. Only been there once and I don't know anything about them.

    Benders Garage in Landisville has done exhaust work for me. They build dirt track racers and custome stuff. But I don't know they're repuation for working on cars.

    I'm just extra worried because of it being under warranty still...I haven't even ordered it yet.
    I called Hoaks (still in business) and they said they only install the lifts that they sell, he was a dick on the phone when I asked him if he knew anywhere else that would be able to do it...he said no

    The last time I went past hoaks (middle of the day), there was no vehicles outside or anything. They must be down to limited hours....Doesn't surprise me that they'd say that and give you an attitude. They used to be a better place a few years back...but some of the good guys got out.

    Other places I can think of aren't necessarily local.....

    Full Circle Performance & Offroad - in Pottstown.
    http://www.fullcircle4x4.com/
    Bruce Shallis works there (or use to). He's one of the Park Officers of Rausch Creek and he competes in RC Rocs for Full Circle. He's a good friend and respected in the offroad community. Fullcircle builds rock buggies & specialized in offroading. You'd be in good hands here - it's just not that local.

    You could call Budds Springs (in Lancaster) and tell them what you need done... they don't like Add-a-leafs so I'm not sure they'd be willing to install them. I had my leafs re-arched on my 96 several years back at Budds.
