May I suggest that you check with local lift kit suppliers for recommended shops. For instance, a 4wheelparts service store is located in Parma. Summit is having their Truckfest in less than a week. I am sure that you could find a recommendation for a shop there. Also, my cousin is the service manager of a shop in Brunswick and his moto is "anything if the money is right; I am sure most shops have the same idea.

It actually isn't that hard to install a kit yourself. The rear end is very simple. The front end takes time and patience but can be finished in a weekend. The hardest and most crutial part is getting the linkage and steering right. Then you need a shop to tweek the alignment as close to factory specs as the lift kit parts allow.

Hey Beerinside
Thanks for getting back with me. I have done the kits myself but I really dont like compressing the front coils. I talked to some guys at summit this summer during a car show out in Masslion and they could not think of a garage around here. I will just have to do some more homework.

I was thinking that if you went to truckfest, there would be lots of jacked-up truck in the show portion and many of them should be from the area.

Sorry I could not be of more help. Good Luck!
