How much does it cost to install a lift kit?

This is probably our most frequently asked questions. It really depends mostly on what brand you choose, your vehicles make and model, and if any OEM parts need replacing.

However, in general a 6″ inch lift kit install will cost you $5000 installed.

How long does it take to install lift kit?

On average it takes about 8- 10 hours to install a Suspension Lift Kit. Older trucks that are 5 years or more away from the current model year take longer most times. This is due to rusted bolts that might need to be burnt off. Also, these vehicles often have other non-lift lit parts that need to be replaced for ride quality and safety. 

Can I Install One Lift Kit On Another?

While in some rare situations this is possible, in general adding two different lift kits would not be recommended.

If you want to upgrade to a bigger lift kit you should remove the old kit first. and then get the new kit installed.

We can remove your old kit too. A small fee may may apply.
