Lift Kit install cost.

hey guys, searched the thread like mad before creating the thread. I have 2 lift kits to be installed on my 03 King ranch. I have the rough country 5" suspension lift and also a 2" torsion keys and add-a-leaf. Just wondering if any of you guys know what the average cost of installs are and if you have had any done on your rides. Just shopping around for the best cost.

I have one shop up in Singhampton that does a flat rate of 800 and they said i would drop off on a friday and have it back on sunday afternoon. Are these kits really that easy to install. I am not a auto mechanic but i do know how to use tools and i also do the routine maintenance on my truck myself, any insight is appreciated.

have another shop in Meaford that is 1000 for the lift kit. So is 800-1200 a good average for the work.

if you know of cheaper let me in on it!

Just my $.02, but cheaper is not always better, especially when dealing with suspension kits.

I don't have any recommendations for you, but I'd personally find someone you trust that will back up their work and eat the cost.

Might save you money in the long run.

x2 on what SVT4MT said.

Quality is the #1 concern when dealing with suspension. If the shops you are going to have experience with it I wouldn't worry about it.

also add in the cost of a front end alignment it will be needed after the lift.
