I know alot of people here have the 6.5" DC lifts. I was wondering for the install, is it something you can do in your driveway or do you speciality tools? I have done my research and this is the lift I want. Just have to save a little money first. Also I am pretty good at working on trucks but not great( used to be a jeep man until now) if this is something that an experienced mech. needs to do I dont mind paying the labor if not to outrageous.
I dont have the torch. But I am in the navy. We have auto hooby shops on base with ASE certified mechs. that work there. They have all the tools and everything. I will probably take it there to do it and if I need any help someone is there.
Ok thanks I will be asking more questions when I get the lift. Have to save a little money first. When you bought your lift what option for the rear did you get? I want my truck to level. I hate it when trucks are higher in the front than back.
I've had two Cepek kits. One on a 92 Blazer and one on my present 99 Burban. With the Blazer I used a 2" add-a-leaf and a 5.5 block. Sat good and level. With the Burban if done a 4" shackle flip (Thanks Willy) and a 3" block. Sits level as well.
I'm no mechanic by any means and I think I made out just fine. Can be installed in a dryway but i'd prefer some sort of garage. Check out my webshots page for pictures of the install. There is also another guys pics of his install in my buddy list on there or whatever it is called, I think it is under dbeirman or something like that. If you have any questions, just hit us up!
