    So im not that mechanically inclined and i want to get the OME lift, should i bring it to a shop to have it installed or have a friend help me out who is about to put the Toytec ULK on his 4Runner? (my friend has only put a spacer lift on his 4Runner)

    The ulk is easy to put on because the coils and shocks come pre-assembled, so no spring compressor is necessary.

    I believe I heard that wheelers offroad will pre-assemble the OME springs and shocks prior to shipping them but I would check with them for sure.

    I was going to get them from Toytec since there cheaper and my friend has a spring compressor. Im just not sure if I should try and install it with him or have someone who knows what there doing install it.
