    I just had my truck's front-end completely redone at Big E Auto Rebuild in Burien. They were really great and everything came back looking awesome.

    They said they do suspension work also. Give them a call and ask for Dan. He'l shoot you straight.

    You can also try Tom's Automotive in West Seattle. They're pricey, though. I've wanted to call Arrow Auto on 4th Avenue downtown and see how they compare, so maybe give them a ring and tell me how they are.

    If you're near Auburn, WA I can do it.You'll have to take your truck somewhere to get an alignment afterward.

    This is true. I'm assuming Seattle. If you're in Portland or Spokane or something, my info won't be any help.

    It doesn't take that long and isn't that hard. Things like skyjacks (or lift) and air tools, spring compressor etc can get the job done. Find someone local with a nice garage or just knows how to do suspension work, where ya located exactly?

    See build thread.
    Suspensions lifts are simple. I used to be hesitant about about em till I started fucking ith my truck more. Now I help people with lifts all the time.

    I'm reluctant to get under the truck. That's an irrational fear isn't it? :eek:
