Anyone on Long Island have the heart to help me out with a shock install?
 
Hey guys, I'm new on this forum but I have a set of 4 Bilstein shocks waiting install. My step dad doesn't like em working on the Jeep at the house, and it'll be nice to have an extra pair of hands to help me do the install. I was quoted at $200 bucks at a garage which is insane.. Ill come to you, that's not a problem and ill give yah like $40 bucks or summin I don't know.

I tried to install my cat back exhaust alone and I had to drive to Pep Boys with no exhaust because I couldn't do it haha. I don't want that to happen again.

I'm in Huntington
Thanks

This is a really easy job. The rears are 2 bolts each and they come out with a good yank!! The fronts are a little tricky as the piston may spin but all you need to do is cut away the plastic shroud and grab hold of the base of the piston with good set of pliers. Shouldn't take more than 45 min for a 1st timer.

We can do it at my job in Hauppauge. There's a mechanic there sometimes that can give us a hand too. Do you have tools?

Yeah I do. The only tools that I don't have that I think ill need are deep sockets. But I have a lot of tools, yep
