Just wondering who has the best 4x4 shop in the Portland/Vancouver area. When I get ready to put a lift on, I want a shop that knows their s**t. I am putting either a Rock Krawler or Teraflex lift on. Thanks
The cost of ordering it online (best price) and the labor of having my local shop install it then add on getting an alignment schwabbies was less than 100 bucks difference. and I have never been disappointed when I have used them for anything. of course, that's not to say independent shops can't be as good.
As long as you trust the shop doing the work. that's really the most important part, IMO
If you're just doing springs and not control arms do it yourself. Only takes a few tools, can rent/borrow a spring compressor and knock it out in a day. I've done spacers, springs and then spacers again and I've got little to no mechanical knowledge. Simply followed instructions on the lift, couple online write ups and it was done. Couple years later and no problems yet. The only place I'd get nervous is if I had to put in adjustable control arms, don't feel comfortable that I'd get those correct and would mess something up. If they were fixed, I'd go for it.
