    Hello all!


    Asking quite the favor here.. Getting my H/S lift kit here in the next week probably (Bilstein 5100’s, OME 888’s, TC UCA’s, H/S 3-leaf). I do not have the garage (nor the experience for that matter) for installing lifts. I was wondering if anyone here would be willing to help an eager pair of hands in installing some pre-assembled coils/shocks, UCA’s, and leafs. I would rather this than taking it to a shop so I can get some hands on experience, willing to compensate you for your time! I live in Harrisburg.


    Thanks,


    Josh

    Shame your not closer to the Philly area. With assembled coils the install is very straightforward.

    Yeah i’ve watched several install videos. I think i could manage, but this would be my very first install and i’d rather have some guidance! Wouldn’t want to fudge a brand new truck Also forgot to throw in that i’d be willing to commute!

    Even being a straightforward install that is not something you want to do too fat away from home...

    I can help you in March/April, Feb is shot to shit.

    I'm about an hour north with a garage.

    You'll definitely want an alignment ASAP.

    I did the same install minus the UCA’s this past summer and I was in the same boat, as far as experience. I have a cousin who’s got a used car place with a nice shop so he let me work there and use his tools, plus he helped a little. Unfortunately I couldn’t help with the place but I could help with some advice at the least. I’d offer to help install too but my wife always thinks it’s weird that I don’t know anyone on here but offer to help so she might object :rofl:

    edit: and I agree with the post above, definitely get an alignment as soon as you can. I took mine to the closest Firestone the same day.

    Hostess peanut butter and chocolate combination for Ho Ho's are the missionary sex position of this amazing duo. It was something, but definitely not as good as it could have been.

    Appreciate all the feedback! I figure i can wait a few more weeks to bank a paycheck or two for some wheels & tires. Maybe i’ll give another shout on here later.

    I might be walking into a scam... but I decided to buy a DeWalt 20V max 10 piece took kit online for $99. That's insane low price. We'll see if my merch shows up and if its genuine brand name stuff.

    If it shows up and seems legit and my credit card doesn't go haywire with fraud stuff... I'm probably going to buy this winch from the same website. Note, I'm just listing an Amazon posting for this winch to see if you guys think this winch is crap and not worth the $99 I see it listed for on the website I bought the tools from.

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    You're definitely walking into a scam.

    I paid Paypal for that tool kit. And I just took down the card from Paypal, so hopefully the card won't get used for anything else unless they can hack Paypal's or Bank of America's systems to get my card info for future purchases? Or I might be naive as to how that stuff works. I kinda felt like taking the $99 gamble to see if this turned out to be true.

    Scam.

    Although having a bank of america account is a scam in its own right.

    I've seen a lot more friends get their credit cards hacked than mine over the years. I've been happy enough. Still doesn't mean my tools will show up even if my card isn't hacked for future shenanigans.

    The biggest problem that we have is counterfeit merchandise. Amazon & Alibaba are the worst at selling the stuff.
