average price of having a lift kit put on?

I have a few questions about having a lift kit put on.I have a 97 f 250.when I bought it,it already had a 3inch body lift and a straight axle put on by the other guy i bought it from.I bought a 6" skyjacker suspension lift and gears for the front and rear axles for my big tires and rims.what is the going price to have a shop put the suspension lift on and pitmen arm and do the front and rear gears?sorry I cant do gears and putting the lift on would be a problem i think the truck would fall if i did it.Anyway one shop told me 2,500 and that seems like a very high price because I was told the gears and lift can all be done in one day if i have all the parts.I have all 4 shocks and drop links for the axles also.So tell me what a decent price is so I dont get taken to the cleaners please.thank you for all your help guys.tony

For lifts, it shouldn't cost more than $750-1,000

Gears could cost about $1,000 also.


What size tires do you plan on using with what gears?

sell that crappy lift kit and buy a shackle reversal from sky manufacturing or ORD.

axle regeaing usually runs $500 per axle..2 axles =$1000

Lift kit can be anywhere from $600-$1000 depending on who's doing it and what needs to be done.

with a 6 inch lift are you going to need longer drive shafts? did you check into that?

i had a 6" done to an F350 of the same year, and we called it at a grand. he originally quoted me like 300 for about 6 hours of work, and it turned into 20 hours, mostly because all the parts were not included. make sure you have extended sway bar end links front and rear, and be prepared to do some mods to the kit to make it work. i dunno if itll be the same on your truck, but on mine, with the same kit, we had to open up the bracket on the frame where the brake line goes into. they give you some sort of "T connector" with the brake lines, and it doesnt fit behind that bracket, so you have to find a way to make more space there. and on the brake lines themselves, the little "blocks" that bolt to the caliper will have to be trimmed a bit so they fit behind a small lip on the caliper. that was the only way i could make my brake lines work up front and not bind up into anything.

also be prepared to either get a longer rear driveshaft, or find 6 degree 3" wide shims to replace the ones that come on the rear springs. my rear driveshaft angle is off by 2 degrees right now, but the front is fine.

if you get the double steering stabilizer for the solid axle 350, it doesnt come with any suggested mounting points, so you have to figure is out yourself in a manner in wich it doesnt bind your steering in anyway.

like i said earlier. i dont know if you'll run into these same problems, but thats what i went through with the same kit for basically the same truck. lol, have fun!
