Cable810 said:3" Lift
New Rear Shocks
Anything else I should be told before I take the TB into the shop.
Need to Know by Thursday!
Tires and Spacers are in the future.
Cable810 said:I was able to have the Mechaninc check the tire rods today.He told me he hasn't replaced them from what he recalls. He didn't tell me If I should replace them or not... He said it would cost me roughly 450-570 to get them replaced....... And I don't have the money to get em replaced right now.
So now can I get the lift installed and not replace the Tire rods but replace them in the future?!?!
Again back to the first Post so we don't get lost answering one question.
New Rear Shocks
Possiable Tire Rod Replacement
jham said:ya you got it all it seems on a side note if your tie rods are bad the mechanic should have told you not just give you a price to replace them if you do I can help you change them at the meet and save you a few hundred only if they need it though
Cable810 said:From what I understood in your punctuation free post... I can replace them in the future after the lift!??!
Regulator said:Seriously, $500 to replace your tie rods?
You need to find another mechanic or learn to do these things on your own. How much is he charging to do your lift? For a case of beer and a pizza it would get done in my driveway and you would learn a few things on turning wrenches along the way.
On the original question though. Replace your upper strut mounts, shocks and struts when doing the lift. Flipping the upper control arms is also a good preventative measure to ensure a bit more life in the upper ball joints.
