    Hey guys, anyone know a shop in sacramento that can put my billy 5100s in? I have always done work myself, I just don't trust my McPherson compressors anymore. Nearly took my face off installing my H&Rs on my BMW. I called major Les Scwab and they will only install their own products.
    Or anyone willing to meet up and work on em if you've got a better set of compressors?

    Thanks!

    I borrowed a spring compressor from Oriely's one time. They had a pin that would lock the hooks on the spring. Seemed pretty secure, no real way for it to go flying. Did a couple spring swaps that way.

    I am willing to help you, just pay for the stall rent fee here at Travis afb... Tools are provided with a wall mounted compressor. It should take 1-2 hours.. And they charge $8/hour to rent the stall

    Thanks bud, I appreciate the offer! I was able to do it on my own last weekend. Loving them so far! I always forget that bases have the stalls you can rent. I've always lived off post.

    I have no skills and want to get Billys installed in Sac too. Is $250 with an alignment a good deal?

    It's fair. You figure about $75 for alignment and $175 for labor about 2-4 hours of labor so like $43-$87 per hour for labor.

    Well it looks like I could do the rears myself, so it would be $200 to not mess with the fronts plus an alignment. I still have a few months to decide as I'm waiting to get new tires and do it all at the same time. Thanks for the info.

    That doesn't sound like too bad of a deal at all.


    And Ted the truck looks good!

    Thanks bro, how's life? Growin the 'stache back? Which LED bar did you mount behind your grille?

    I got an N Fab bar... but i think I'm going to sell it and just mount an LED bar behind my Grillcraft. I like the clean look of nothing in front of the bumper.

    Lol considering the stache again :cool:

    And I have a 20" okledlighbars LED bar mounted on a BAMF behind the grill light bar. I'll show at school if you want, just text me. And yeah I like the lights behind the grill personally, but some look good on n fab bars
