I'm paying $425 to get my Rocky Road lift kit /w shocks installed, aligned and a 500 mile re-torque for $425 tax included. The price does not include the kit.

Is that a fair price and what's the advantage of having a re-torque after 500 miles?

Thanks,

I just had the RR 2.25 lift installed on my Grand Cherokee (almost exact suspension to the Commander) here in Oklahoma I paid $175 for the install no parts bought the lift direct from Rocky Road.

Hope that helps?

I paid $375 to have the Rusty's kit installed, but they didn't do an alignment on it, so the price that they're giving you is about right.

I paid $325 to have the outside driveshaft boots replaced that I busted while putting the lift on myself and for the alignement. $425 to have it all done does not sound too bad to me.

Thanks guys for you input. It seems that the owner of the shop is pretty honest. I will have to wait and see how the job went.

Now, Im glad and definetly know why i need to be a little poorer. Im not putting that kit in myself , cause im that type that always screws something else up :)

I'm mechanically challenged... what boots (CV or Driveshaft) are you talking about? More importantly how can you tell if the boots are broken? What are the symptoms?

Thanks!

The symptoms are that you have grease all over the inside of your rim and the wheelwell. Pretty easy to spot:)

Swiss is correct. I had both of my CV boots ripped by the installer and when I went to get the wheels alligned, the mechanic shop pointed it out to me. It is very easy to spot. Grease everywhere on the inside of the rims.
