Default Another question about lifts???

So a 4 or 6 inch lift price I'm expecting to pay 1500-2000
What should I expect to pay in labor?

Anyone care to share the price out the door they paid for theirs?

I was quoted at like $2500 for a 6" BDS lift out the door. I told them not to include an alignment because I would have my friend do it for cheaper. I don't have a 4th gen Ram, but it's always fun to dream

Generally if you have a shop do it for you it will be about another 1k. If its a bolt-on kit it is really not too difficult though. Maybe another member close by could help you out with it?

Your labour should come out to be around 8-10 hours. That is what the lift usually says in the instructions. So take a look at the shops hourly rate and then judge it from there. It should probably be safe to say it will be close to $1000

It depends on how familiar the shop is with that particular kit. I would be hesitant to have a shop install anything more complicated than a bug shield if it's their first time, unless I knew them well.

In the Bay Area and LA it will cost about $600 for an IFS kit. Central Valley and North Coast will be less.

FYI, the 2" leveling kit+3" body lift combo goes in quicker. You can get the "out the door" price for $1500 easily. Parts AND labor.
