Lift Kit Install Help - Monmouth County

Hey guys, my first post on the boards. I have been meaning to sign up and this ended up being the kicker.

I received my Teraflex 2.5" lift kit, exhaust spacer, and Rancho 9000's. Now just to get it installed. I was hoping someone might have time to help me install this some day soon. I was planning on doing it with a buddy tomorrow, then other obligations developed for him.

I considered installing this myself but figured I might as well see if anyone could help first. Of course I will pay in either pizza & beer, or food and some cash if that's preferable. I certainly wouldn't mind another pair of eyes.

I'm out in Holmdel in Monmouth county 07733

Thanks for the consideration guys and I'll see ya on the trails.

This is actually my first post as well, I have a zone 3" lift I installed with me and two buddies back in June at my buddies house. It took us about 9 hours granted the one friend was just muscle and me and the other guy were the ones with mechanical experience. Even if you have guys knowing exactly what they are doing and are pretty quick its going to take at least 4-5 hours. You should really have atleast one person helping thats familiar with doing car mods etc. I would thoroughly go through the instructions for your lift and make sure you have all the parts before you start. Also make sure theres no tools you need to rent or you get them in advance of the lift day.

I live in Jackson but im in middletown area all the time if you get some sort of solidified date with your buddy or others that your going to do the lift I could try to shoot by and see if I could be of some assistance.

Hey Anthony, thanks for that offer. I ended up actually slowly doing it by myself with my roommate checking on me and helping out with things.
I took it extra slow since I had nothing else to do and wanted to do it right. It took about 12 hours doing it solo including my three trips to home depot.

For future people I recommend getting a solid jack. I spent hours of time moving the wood blocks I had under my jack and moving to different jack positions. The rest was a breeze if you have the right tools.
Definitely a good time and I am loving the look of my ride now. It looks more filled out and fitting with my 33's.

I found plenty of tips and help in advance from these forums and plan on posting on here a lot more. Next step is my light bar!
