Bring it in to a fab shop, i.e. skg motorsports and the likes. They're in your vicinity and will hook you up.

That does seem high but i'm not in Cali!
The kit is $1700
Figure $100/hr labor
2 skilled mechs should knock it out in an 8hr day... that's $800
Now you're up to $2500
Another ~$200 tax
$2700 seems a bit more fair.

Dude, if you buy that lift I'll help you install it myself. I'd love to see how it all goes together.

If you end up doing this with Syndicate or someone else in CA, let me know. I will give you my cell and you can call me if you hit any road blocks. There is also a thread on XOC where two of us who have installed the lift have posted hints and tricks.

It is a really logical install. Air tools will help, but not necessary. Breaker bar is a must. A mix of deep well sockets too. You will need to borrow or buy a torque wrench if you don't have one.

Calmini estimates the install time for a shop to be 6-10 hours. If you end up paying someone, figure $80-100 per hour...it is $80 in Utah.

If you do it yourself, it will take you more than a weekend, so plan for some down time.
