Default Shops that install lift /leveling kits?

Anyone know or recommend any shops that can install lift / leveling kits around the Northside of Chicago?

I will be lifting the suburban. 😁😁

Thanks in advance!

Rape prices and he takes forever.
I wont knock his work though, he is good at what he does.
But a simple lift or level can be done almost anywhere, its not complicated.
I did my own on my Ram and a buddies Wrangler and had never done one before.

What kit did you buy? I did my level kit on my Silverado and it was very easy. Just took it for an alignment after and it was perfect. What year Suburban? I want to level my 17’ but than again I still have a set of new wheels/tires that have been sitting here since July so I’m procrastinating a bit these days ��

If youíre just doing leveling blocks in the front you can do it yourself. I did my Silverado in about an hour and itís really simple. Loosen nuts on top of strut, loosen sway bar end links, remove lower strut bolts and put in leveling block. I think Rough Country makes a top and bottom spacer kit that makes the CV angles better than just a bottom spacer, if I had to do it again thatís what Iíd go with.

2001 suburban.

I don't want anything crazy, I don't want to compromise ride quality too much.

Im looking into getting this, but I don't know if a 2in "lift" would be noticeable?

keys are a scam. the aftermarket keys are just in a different position to allow the adjustment bolt to have thread in each direction. all you need to do is crank the fuck out of the adjustment bolt EQUALLY to achieve the lift you want. you can gain about 3" out of just cranking the bolts.

then get some coil spacers for the rear, like from a 4th gen fbody, they are 2" thick.

but if i were you, id loosen the front torsion bolts to lower it, then put some shorter springs in the back to "level" it.
