Where should I go for a lift install Bucks Co, Or Ne Philly area.
Where should I go for a lift install Bucks Co, Abington ( WG) Or Ne Philly areas. I have a 2006 LJ. I am mechanically inclined, i have most the tools and people to help. Is that something i could do myself? I do not have a spring tensioner(?).

As I understand it it should be something you can do yourself once you jack it up and disconnect the sway bar links axle should drop down enough to drop out the old coils. As far as the tensioner get some rachet straps and compress the springs that way. I plan on putting my first lift on my 06 in a couple of weeks. So that is my plan at least.

I am going to go with the The Rough Country 4" N2-Series Lift. I have not ordered it as of yet. I will be ordering it next week.

The only place I know of first hand is Jeff Daniels in Harleysville. I think their hourly rate is $85. Figure 4 - 6 hours for a lift and shocks.

They also do welding, skids on the lower control arms are always a good idea.

I'd you are only doing 2.5 suspension, you can do it yourself, I recommend a helper. You will need a spring compressor (you can get them for around 40 dollars. I did my own with a helper, you would be suprised at the exact step by step directions out there. I do recommend a lot of pb blaster!
