Best place to get carli/toyo installed in South Louisiana

I have a 2012 CC PS F250. Want to install Carli Performance 2.0 4.5" kit with Full Progressive Pack rear leaf springs and Toyo 35x12.5 R20LT tires. Best price I found so far is $6656 installed. Anyone else around Lafayette La install these packages?

I considered that but wasn't sure how difficult it would be. Other than jacks and jackstands, what other tools are required? I would assume just wrenches and a torque wrench.

We have plenty of customers installing themselves. Carli sends out very clear instructions. Proper jack stands, a floor jack, 1/2" drive sockets, wrenches, and a torque wrench should have you covered. We try to even get Sunday calls answered for the driveway guys who run into install questions!

CJCOffroad - Was looking at your website, at the 4.5" Performance 2.0. I would like to add/upgrade the rear with the full progressive rear leaf spring pack. I've been looking around at pricing and shipping. Can you send me pricing for the 2.0 with rear leaf pack? feel free to email me - johnwhitman@zoho.com.

They aren't that back to install especially since your truck is new and won't have a lot of rust to deal with. The track bar needs to be torqued higher than most home mechanics torques wrenches will go. So just get it as tight as you can and then have the alignment shop torque it to spec.

The money that you save by doing it yourself can be spent on the tools that you may not have and you'll have those forever.

You might want to look at the Backcountry 2.0 kit as it rides the same if now a hair better then the Performance 2.0, has maintenance free bushings, and is over $250 less expensive.
