    Can anyone recommend a shop that can install a lift kit around the Los Angeles\Gardena Ca area. I think I will probably just go with Toytec coil overs and a new leaf pack.
    Thanks

    I would kind of rather have a shop do it. I would also like to see what kind of prices they would offer.

    4wheelparts charged me $300 for installing the coilovers and my UCAs plus another $100 for an alignment.

    From what I understand, it's not hard to do it yourself, especially if you have the complete kit. I'd find someone in your area that can help and do it yourself.

    Ok I'll check them out. Did you get your lift from them or did they just do your install.

    no, i got the shocks from downsouthmotorsports.com, he is just a mechanic, he is one of those honest mechanics that you can't find anymore. my company has been using him for over 15 years.
