Need A Install Place

Just picked up the 2.5 Teraflex lift kit but didn't get the shocks. so i waited a little and just ordered them separately. Am I missing something for my kit? would love to know what else i need. i also Called a couple local spots to see how much the install would be and they quoted me at 500$ for it. Anyone know where i can get a good deal? Im in the San Fernando Valley

I think $500 is a fair price. Don't forget to budget for your alignment after the install.

If you were closer I'd do it for half the price But yes, sounds fair enough, maybe a little high but not bad.

Go to for wheel parts on Sepulveda by van nuys. I got my 2.5 rk lift installed with control arms and brake lines (alignment) for around 600 bucks.

If you're sticking with your stock wheels and tires, you'll need 1.25"-1.5" wheel spacers to avoid contact with your rear swaybar link upper bolt. Otherwise you'll need aftermarket wheels with 4.5" backspacing.

If you want to host an install party, you can get your lift kit installed for the cost of pizza and beer, plus you'll learn a lot about your suspension. I'm in Burbank, I've got all the necessary tools, experience working on these lift kits, and the willigness to help out, although my weekend availability is pretty tight. There may be others in the SFV willing and able to help as well.

Haha, I'd definately install that for half. Live aways from ya though. Alignment costs for a simple draglink adj, seems excessive to me. Takes about two minutes and is the only adj it will need. Unless you really have no hand tools and basic mechanical ability.

Do yourself a favor and ask TF about an axle side Trackbar mount as opposed to the frame bracket. Supposedly they were gonna upgrade that kit and dump the frame bracket. Don't know if its an old pic or they never did.

Also, the picture shows the kit with the shock extensions. I don't know if that's a picture of the kit you purchased, but you won't be needing the shock extensions since you bought the shocks. The shock extensions are only needed if you use the stock shocks with the lift kit.

And yah as highwayman mentioned, you'll need to adjust the turnbuckle on your draglink to re-center your steering wheel, and that's a very simple thing to do yourself.

That sounds like a great idea lol but I am going to wait till i get my wheels and tires so i can do everything at once and take care of that with one shot.

I purchased this kit from Vertical4 I don't think they changed it since it was the same on the TF website and its about to be a week since i bought the thing.

In that case, call TF and pickup an axle bracket. You'll need to reinforce the TB mount anyways. Might as well do it at the same time and kill two birds with one stone. The frame drop TB bracket isn't the way to go. Just my two cents. I ran the same lift for awhile with a lot of additional mods.
