Superlift install party...lol!!! I'm in

I have a buddy who has his own personal auto shop at his house...he bought a lift, tire balancer...etc from a shop that went out of business. We might be able to meet up at his place and install the lifts, atleast I know he has everything we need.

MOTO...when you gonna get your lift?? and No, I have not bought my lift yet. Just waiting until I know I will have the time and I have a buddy who's dad works for...Damn cant remember the name...some parts company, so I just have to say "get it." If we can set up a date for the "Superlift install party" I can try to get everything set up...I live over towards Newnan/Peachtree City, South of the ATL. down 85. Just let me know so I can talk it over with my buddy.

There is plenty to do around here. I was gonna try to put the lift on in a week or two...I'm going to Miami to visit my brother in September, but I can hold off until you get your lift if it means having a SIP(Superlift Install Party). Maybe we should contact Superlift and see if we can get them to be a party sponsor...get some free $#!t out of them...NOW who else is going to be getting a Superlift?? and be joining us??

hey brenton i could find you a place to stay here easily... i should have the lift by christmas. i talked to my dad this morning and he told me he will try to help me pay for the lift for christmas.

sea-bass i pulled up a map of us


we really aren't too far away. i could put this into the D3 and be there in 45 minutes. oh yea, where is the cheapest you have found the lift so far? on stuffforyourranger.com it's going for like $1850.00, but it was 1600.00 just 6 months ago. and i agree superlift needs to sponsor this party!! haha

I'll be in the market by X-Mas time (maybe/hopefully sooner) to get a lift. I'll take a road trip to Georgia. Lets party it up.

If someone can seriously contact Superlift and see if they will give a group discount, I'll get a Superlift.

I called Wayne.

he said it doesnt matter if it's 1 kit, or 5, the cost will likely be the same. He did say though that he could beat alot of prices on the net. He mentioned $1350 but also said he'd need my address to check on freight costs.
He asked what kind of prices i had seen on the net, and it ranged from like 1498 to 1800 for the whole kit. He said he'd beat that by 100 or more.

I emailed him some information, and said we'd probably have at least 5 people by december, if not 10 or more. I'll let everyone know what he says when he emails me back, on an official cost, though it might vary slightly for shipping. I also said that I personally was interested in the superlift driveshaft as well, but i didnt know who all from here and RPS was interested in the driveshaft. So uhh, I guess we should create a new thread for this maybe? to keep count of who all is interested in a group buy in december... cause that way, if we got like 15 or so, i'm sure he could do better than 1350.

Moto, you wanna make a new thread?

No problem. That mean you're planning on getting in on it come december or so?

Wayne also said he wasnt able to get "as good" of pricing cause he hadnt been selling his quota or whatever, so maybe if we help him out with an order of 10-15 kits, maybe he'd be able to snag better pricing..

man $1350 would be an excellent price. that means i could have my new tires even sooner. i've also got my #1 torsion bars to put in too. but i've been pretty sick lately and haven't been able to go to work :( freddie you driving down to GA for the install?

I did mine all by myself in 3 days. I had read the instructions over and over and over. I also soaked every bolt and nut on the truck with PB blaster for a week. You can do it with a jack ( I would say 2 to make it easier) and definatley some jackstands. You will need either the torsion bar puller which is around 70$ on the local snapon truck, or u can get a 3 jaw puller and be really carefull but it will work fine. Here's the thread for my install, not a how to but at least some pics for u to look at. Hope this helps man.

The only issue with running 33s or 35s other than the take off power is stopping distance.
I almost rear end someone who stomped on their brakes in front of me a week after i got my 33s
