Default Need Install Help in Denver

I'm having a hell of a time finding someone to do some simple upgrades on my 2018 F-150 SCREW XLT. I'm just looking for installation of Bilstein 5100's all around to level the front. The more recognizable 4x4 shops want an arm and a leg. Some smaller shops dont' seem to know what I mean when I talk about using the front struts to level the front. Anyone know of a friendly, fairly priced mechanic who can do the work well? I don't mind paying. I just don't want to get taken to the cleaners for a rather simple project. Thanks!

Don't have any info pertaining to where you live, but I just had my Eibach front level shocks installed at a local Ford dealer. Charged me $220 for install, in and out in 3 hours, no problems. I'm happy. Maybe that will give you another avenue to check out.

I had a local Mr Tire install my rancho quick lifts on a previous truck, so you could try a tire shop as well..

if you have a smaller shop that you like, just ask them to change out your shocks. Stick around to make sure they are set up how you want. Maybe they donít realize you can use them for leveling the trucks....but if they know how to change them out...you should be good.

I take it you tried Advanced Four Wheel Drive & Auto Repair and Busted Nut Diesel in Castle Rock? If so, were they crazy prices as well? I have a 4.5" lift kit I'll be putting on in the spring and want a shop to do it.

Ive been in your shoes before and if you just show the mechanic how to set the perch its a straight forward shock replacement which any mechanic can do.
