need some hands/know how for lift install in Durham

Hey guys. I just purchased mid duty OME rear springs, 2" coil spacers, shocks and harware for my '01 xj. I had mechanic buddy of mine who was gonna help with install, but he can no longer do it. Anyone in the Durham/Triangle area that could lend some time and know-how on getting this lift installed OR have a suggestion of a mechanic that would be willing to do it fairly cheap? I'm in grad school and can't afford 5- 6 hours of average mechanic labor cost.

My driveway isn't gonna be a great place to do it, and my tool resources are somewhat limited AND my knowledge resources are somewhat limited (haha).

I've got beer and pizza money or could reimburse for time with $.

Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.

afraid not. I've got basic hand tools and a good floor jack. At minimum I need jack stands, and things would go a lot quicker with an impact wrench. I checked at sunbelt rental. 4 jack stands, 1 air compressor, 1 impact wrench = $142 for a day before tax and insurance.

What is your tool situation? ARe you in the triangle area?
