Need Help in Long Island!

Ok, just going to throw this out there. I am a new JKU Rubi owner in Suffolk County, LI. I am ordering a Teraflex Leveling Kit, but dont have the tools or knowledge to install it myself.

Can anyone reccommend a shop or person to do this? I called the Truck Shop in Sayville, and got a quote of approx 4 hours of labor at 100 dollars per hour.

My 130 dollar leveling kit just became a 530 dollar leveling kit any suggestions?

I would suggest learning how to do it yourself.. search the forums, and you'll find plenty of info on how to do it. Its not a hard job by any means and requires few tools. Everyone started with no knowledge, and slowly learned

It's a local group on Long Island. Look up Goonies. He works out of Planet Automotive.

You'll need a floor jack, jackstands, and a torque wrench. Once it's done, you'll have to take it to a shop for alignment, so I could probably help with the first half, but the second half, you're going to have to find someone to do. I'm fairly handy, but not sure if you want a stranger fiddling with your Jeep.

thanks for the input gentlemen- I will be looking into those groups for sure. I've recruited a few guys to take a crack at getting this thing done by myself, hope I dont mess up the new rubi .....
