    I have been searching the internet forever and I cant find a place that will install them!
    Please don't lecture me about how I shouldnt get a body lift, I have a 5lug that keeps me from raising it anymore.
    (5 lug: Total Chaos UCA, Icon 2.5, Deaver leafs, Bilstein 5100s, BFG 31s)

    I contacted "SoCalSuspension" and they quoted me $1300! I am looking to spend as least amount of money as possible.

    Thanks for the help

    I'm in Orange County ut wouldnt mind going to Inland empire, San Diego, or Los Angeles. I have been quoted average $1300 on about 4 different shops.
    I am wondering if there are third party people that can install this for a less hefty price?

    Since the SoCal chapter is so large, I recommend posting a new thread titled "come help me install...." and offer up lots of beer and pizza. I'm sure you'll find some experienced members here that will help.

    $1300 is outrageous. It's only a 3 hour job at most depending on what extras come with the kit.

    Good luck.

    My co-worker went to Sears and got his lift (C/O's, AAL) installed for $750.

    There is also SoCal Super Trucks shop in San Bernardino.

    He was completely capable of DIY, but he lives in an apartment complex and also wanted the work to be covered by shop warranty
