Hello everyone

I finally bought the mcgaughy 2/3 deluxe kit and I am wondering how much you guys paid for installation?

Ive called 3 places so far and they all gave me price quotes around $420. (Not including the alignment afterwards)

Does this seem reasonable?

Damn, thats hella expensive! I have two trucks and both of them got lowered on the same exact kit you have for $220 each. I guess it all depends on what shop you go to. Every shop will charge different. Just keep calling around until you find the best price. Thats what I did.

Counter offer them to $300 flat and that sounds reasonable. :thumbsup:

The shop that did mine took about 5 hrs, but that was because only 1 guy doing it.

Alright

I got it installed

looks great and rides about 90% like factory......

Group 5 motorsports also explained to me how the mcgaughy suspension is way better than the eibach......

I like the ride and I have noticed more of a rolling effect while turning.

Ill post pics up tomorrow

Today I took it into a body shop to help cut the fenders because the 24's rub like a mofo during tight turns.

I got the metal/plastic parts cut off but it still rubs a little, I cant imagine what the 3"/5" drop owners do.....

I also noticed that it rubs a little on the windshield washer fluid container.....anyone notice that too?


Other than that I love the ride and the look.......way worth it...

lol. Well, your truck looks awesome. Keep up the good work. :thumbsup:

It looks really white with that camera! Anyways, only ONE tiny dinsy weeny thing I see that can improve it is the front bumper looks not connected right. It hangs a tiny little bit!!
I'm not complaining!!! Just something I notice!! your truck looks great like I said! :thumbsup:

you know I thought that too.....


but it seemed to have come from the factory like that :confused: because the bumper was angled the same way before I customized it.
