HELP PLEASE!!! RC 2" lift

So I have the lift but need it installed. I am lacking the tools to do it myself. The cheapest estimate I got was $270 including front alignment. Is that a bad price?

Not bad. You need spring compressors for the springs but everything else is pretty straight forward. Not a hard install at all!!

Good luck!

Re: HELP PLEASE!!! RC 2" lift

Thats a great price. The cheapest ive found is $350, another guy said 4-5 hrs at $100 an hr. I am in NY so my prices are higher but i think $270 is fair as hell.

Re: HELP PLEASE!!! RC 2" lift

Well it was cheaper than I thought, $240! I think I'm going to get some load levelers for the back and I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep the 245 tall tire too for a while.

Re: HELP PLEASE!!! RC 2" lift

that is a good price especially that they are going to include the alignment. If you had the tools its a pretty easy install and a great learning experience for you since its not a more difficult project

Re: HELP PLEASE!!! RC 2" lift

That is an AMAZING price! I would've gladly paid someone else to do my lift for that kind of a deal. Just make sure they put it in writing and don't nickel and dime you to death later.

Great price, do it! The alignment alone cost me 120.

Hey jay, the 265/70/17s fit perfect with the RC lift and the 1.5 wheel spacers. I actually ended up getting the superlift and adding onto it so im at a little over six inches all around now with 305/70/17s.
