Average labor cost to install lift kit?
What do you guys think the average labor cost should be to install the
2.25" RR lift kit?
2.25" RR lift kit?
It cost me 3$ to install mine. Haha, the base auto shop charges 1$ an hour to use a flat bay and any tool you could ever need. Don't be scared, do it yourself! The RR kit comes with really good instructions and it's a relatively easy install. All you need is a jack with stands, some wrenches/sockets, and maybe a mallet or a cutting wheel depending on how things go, haha. The install has a few quirks to it that can slow you down. I would suggest having a buddy help you, preferably someone that knows their way around a garage. Also, set aside a good part of the afternoon to do it, though it should only take 2-3 hours, you may run into unforeseen delays.

The basic lift isn't that tough of a job though, just have some help, preferably someone mechanically inclined if you are not yourself.

Yea, that must be were it goes because it certainly doesn't go to my paycheck. But, if you are interested, for just 17 cents a day, you can feed and cloth a starving Marine and give him a chance at life he may never have had...
Shop in Fredericksburg, VA quoted me $300 just the other day. This was for install only.
