    Belltech drop 4x4 $500 ???

    So I got my belltech 4x4 lowering kit ( torsion keys and leaf springs ) and I plan on putting them on this week. I've been calling my local auto repair shops today to get quotes on how much it would cost to install it and either they won't do it or the average price has been $500 + ... Sooo being on a budget I can't afford that price at all so I'm going to try to do it myself. I dont' have any experience with dropping and suspension but first time for everything eh ... I will be posting alot of pics / videos during the whole process. Any wisdom from you guys to help make the job easier would be greatly appreciated

    If you don't have torches you had better find some and a sledge hammer to get the torsion bars to move to get the keys out.

    Man .... thats like 45 minutes away from me ! So you own your own shop then ? Would I be able to borrow your tools ? How long could I work on it for ? How much money would you want ? Would you be willing to help me do it ? Ya there is now way I can pay $500 to have a shop do it so if your willing to help me out that would be sweet

    I did the same drop on my old 87 with a 3lbs sledge hammer, jack and jackstands and basic hand tools in about 2 hours.
