Thinking of going with the Toytec adjustable coilovers that work with my Trail Teams Bilsteins... where can I go to get it installed here in Orange County?

Several of us have done this in the driveway. Just set a couple of install dates, and give it a couple of days for some responses. You might be surprised! And the fee ranges from a diet coke to beer and pizza.

I would totally DIY it if I had the time, but usually I am working 7 days a week.

That's why I am trying to get ideas for a place to get the install done where I could just drop the truck off then pick it up.

I would love to ask someone on the forums to do it, I would just feel bad about leaving them alone to do all the work then picking it up later.

most tire shops will do it for you. I take it you are going to get the threaded springseats that slips on over your existing shocks

Too bad you can't take a day and go to Demello's shop in Corona. Honestly, that's the place to get any work like this done. I trust Jason completely. I have to....he has my credit cards!

My Toytec coilovers are gonna be delivered soon, but I am still trying to figure out where to get them installed... called Demello... but the price of install is more than the coilovers!!! Why is installing a lift 3 times as expensive as installing lowering springs & shocks on my BMW?

If I did just a nonadjustable OME lift... I wouldn't mind taking it to the same place I did the BMW... but since it's adjustable I want to be sure the height and everything is correct.

I'll try the dealership that Toytec suggested.

Yup... the adjustable coilovers for the TRD and TT Bilsteins...

Well I have one potential installer, will even pick up the truck from work and drop it back off when done since they are right down the street from where I work... a little on the high side, but much better pricing than Demello (think almost a little more than 1/2 of what Demello quoted) plus it includes pick up and drop off along with alignment ;D

They where recommended by my Toyota Service Department!!!

i heard these are a pain in the arse to adjust height, maybe he needed a spring compressor to adjust them? hans i dont know when my walker evans will be rebuilt, but i plan on doing it myself maybe we can have a mod day and put yours on too? im not sure when i can though

Hi guys, just came across this post (noob here). I recommend calling Supreme Power out in Placentia, CA. They have done mine, and a few friends FJ's/discovery. They even have a project FJ at their shop-
give them a call...714.632.1951 www.supremepower.com (they sell ToyTec, Demello, etc. products as well)

Panda, try Supreme, I called them up to see what they can do, and they do all fj installs and at $200, just ask about their deals. I'm getting mines done this weekend. TT owner as well.
