Small offroading, I need to find someone who installs lifts!

You need to find someone who will teach you how to install your lift :poke:

I would love to learn how but I am mechanically challenged. I have very small patience and just suck at doing mechanic stuff. Doing a lift on something I need to daily drive and making sure I do everything right seems very far fetched.

It's pretty basic labor. Just roll up your sleeves, buy some tools, and follow the instructions or tutorials. We all had to start somewhere. Turning a wrench is a basic skill, so is patience, they both come with a little practice.

Scariest part is compressing the spring. So you can take your own strut assemblies out, bring them to a shop, hamf them the struts and your lift and let them install it with their big wall mounted spring compressor.
