the leveling kit should be a pretty easy install...you wont need anything other than what comes with the kit to do it.

Well, what is the price? You can buy a HBS 2.5" leveling kit for $70. You don't need anything else to install the leveling kit other than a good set of tools, and I highly recommend using air tools.

Your gonna need some large size metric sockets...and when your done ...don't forget to get an alignment

Is that new shocks or something? $217.00 is quite ridiculous for a leveling kit.

I agree $75-$80 is reasonable and I think the $200 is installed. I could see a 4x4 shop charging $150-$200 for kit AND install.... I've got the 2.5 Rough Country on mine and its DEAD level and rides nice.

2.5" works perfect and you can fit 35" no problem with zero rubbing. I have 295/70R18 and it sits perfectly level.
