I bet John's 4x4 Center could do it, but they'll charge you $$$. They're on east Arapahoe

i would do it in my backyard but all my buddies with fully set-up garages are back in San Diego so until i get my tool situation back up im doomed to have shops do this crap, But ill check out johns 4x4 and see if they wont chage me an arm and a leg!

All you need is some 9/16ths front spring bolts, u bolts, a couple of sawzall blades, and a cut off disk from having a pretty much easy install.

Plus a hydraulic jack and at the least 2 jack stands of which all of the above i do not own :p and i would buy instead of taking it to the shop but i have no place to store them in my 2 BR apartment..so its a vicious cycle so until i get some more room i have to use shops.

come on out to my place in gunbarrel and we can take care of you. its just a 1 car garage but ive already done a few decent projects in there. I have jackstands ect. my floor jack is at my moms house but we could get away with a bottle jack or a hi lift if you have sliders.

(I take it from the avatar you ride? whatcha got?)

If you wanna help me put this stuff together that would be awesome, i prolly wont be getting the kit for a few weeks but ill keep ya posted. And Ill prolly need to pick up a few tools for the new brakelines and pick some wrenches up but 2 ppl would be way easier than one. I can throw you some money and brews too! Oh and i use to downhill until my custom built (i built it) Intense M1 with Monster T's got stolen worth around 5-6k, Complete downer but im gonna be getting one this summer!

I could probably help too, got jack stands(6 and 8 ton), and "air" tools once I get my co2 filled.

swapping a suspension shouldnt take more than a day if you have all new hardware and a willingness to let me cut out the usual stubborn old bolts. so I wouldnt mind helping. I usually need a couple weeks notice when we could do it but its not a biggie. a few beers and ill be a happy camper.

I kinda got out of the DH thing after highschool but one of my new bikes is still a yeti asr 7. the new toy is a SC Highball SS to kill trails around here. tons of great riding in co.

I could also help you out at my place. Biggest concer will be that the front coilover adjusting collars are not frozen. Start spraying them with pb blaster now and they should be ok though.

Does anyone have some thoughts on places to get stome solid hardware for this build, i.e. new bolts and nuts for the leafs and new u-bolts that will fit the AP 3" leaf packs? Also im not sure on my shackle selection, i was thinking about the OME greaseables any 2 cents on them or the AP ones or anyothers? It always seems the closer i get to ordering this stuff the more questions i have!

Any hardware store that has a 9/16 grade 8 will be good, or Oder some grease able ones from all pro.
