noob 4" Long arm Lift question

I am looking at the teraflex 4" long arm lift. I know i will have to weld the bracket on before installing however i don't have a welder right now. Can i take the bracket to a local shop and have them weld it on with out taking off the old one and get back home and install the kit? any help would be greatly appreciated.

No. There are 4 or 8 brackets that need to be welded. And no you cant drive it without the arms connected on their brackets

No. That won't work. Lower mounts have to be removed. Just get a shop to do it. There isn't much more labor after the mounts are welded on.

If you're in SoCal we can do it. It's the same lift I have.

Make sure you have something to get your old brackets off. An air chisel worked best for us.
Good luck and show some pic's along the way.
