Lift Installation Cost

Pretty straight forward. What would the average cost for lift installation be? I'm looking to get this lift:
Rustys Offroad: TJ Wrangler 2" Basic Kit

Fairly simple, but I'm far from mechanically inclined, and I want it done right. I'm just looking for a general price range, and a good place to take my Jeep around Lexington, SC if anyone's familiar with the area.

Thats the same kit I'm getting, but I'm going to do it myself, so I'm not sure about the cost.

I would say a few hundred dollars in labor. I could see them getting 3-4 hours for that job, Maybe $200-$400, depending on labor rates and how honest the mechanic shop is.

Another side would be surprised at how easy it is to change shocks and springs. Do have any buddies that have any basic auto knowledge?

I'd highly recommend you try doing it yourself. Gets you familiar with the jeeps suspension. Its not difficult and is fun. just be careful and use jack stands

spend a couple hrs google searching for ways to remove coil springs from a TJ. if i can do it, anyone can

I just had my 4" lift installed a week ago. I believe it was right around $400.
