    Labor is pretty high IMO. Try to negotiate. Worst case they say no.

    well from what i have heard its a pretty simple install, so you could get labor for about 0$ and some bloody knuckles :)

    Thats totally crazy... can you attempt to do it your self? I have never worked on a cars suspension before and I just followed chris4x4's write up for installing my front shocks and stuff and life was good. I ran into a prob here and there but all i had to do was pm chris or another member and it was fixed... a month ago I just even installed a block. :woot:

    I have never attempted shocks/struts or any suspension type stuff. Just afraid i may get in over my head. I dont have a garage or all the tools that may be needed for this job. But, im still researching, this site has definitely helped who knows I may try it.

    is this a spacer that your planning on using in addition to the 5100s set at 2.5? if so, dont do it. stacking lifts is a big no no
