    Posted a while back, finally made it and sort of settled into south Denver. Stopped in Moab for a few days and found out what the tundra could do. Nothing too crazy. Teaming up with Olympus Off-Road helping him build his new ultra4 car and also plan to make a few things for the tundra! Slim winch bumper and dimpled filler plates for the sliders will be very soon. Any other possible requests? Anyone in the Lone Tree/Parker are want a deal on some rock sliders, any style (pictured is my signature kickout)? I need a clean frame to mock up some bolt on flanges. Ive got weld on my truck so I cant use it.. I'll be in the area for a little while and offering some discounts and referral deals :D

    Hello good folks, wondering if anyone knows of any shops in the Denver area that will install customer supplied shocks.

    Most of the big places obviously want you to buy shocks from them so they can warranty as well.

    Does anyone have a good place to to recommend? Much thanks!

    I did actually. Very impressed. I saw that you went to Lake Powell. My grandpa used to take me fishing there back in the early 60's

    I'm in no rush. I'm actually planning on throwing the rears(bilstein 5100) on myself.

    I don't have a spring compressor for the fronts.

    Thanks again!

    May as well.. the rears are super easy, Don't even need to remove the tire! Do you just need front shocks installed? If so $800 is crazy! Even if they include alignment firestone lifetime is $200 or less. My book is wide open right now so I could do it first of next week if you'd like. shouldn't take more than a couple of hours max.

    To be fair to RPG, it was $800 for all four plus alignment.

    sending PM sir

    Still sounds a bit high to me. Like I said I use firestone to align mine because I can go anywhere in the country and as many times of day as id like if I wanted to. They didn't ask questions when I SAS'd my taco and do it everytime. Think I paid $150 many years ago. Recently did it on the Tundra as well. Rear shocks will literally take 20-30 mins tops. fronts shouldn't be more than 2-3 hours if you run into issues.
