That's not bad for parts and install. Unless you meant $2600 just for labor only which would be straight robbery.

Doesn’t sound bad. Is installing yourself a possibility at all?

Pretty good setup, however, I would consider installing yourself if you could, Even if you had to buy the tools its still cheaper than a shop doing it. I can walk you through it also if you need! Although i understand if thats not a possibility. Just something to consider as it can save you a lot of money

yes, Some tire shops wont install them but majority will. There is no problem with the width of the stock rims with bigger tires.

The 6112 + 5160 is a good setup, but the 6112 are very stiff on road and you really only see top performance when pre running hard. If you’re working a full time job and don’t have a ton of time for hitting the dirt, i would recommend considering them with less stiff spring.

I have 6112 & 5160 with rear leaf packs. I have it set to 5/6 notch to get two inches. Overall, I have loved the setup. The top notch is a little stiff, but I personally love it. Overall performance is outstanding and have had no issues. I would highly recommend installing yourself, because it is an easy install. I would recommend getting leaf packs instead of AAL.

Please let me know if you have any questions about it that I can help you with!

If you are paying that much I would look into the BP51s. I just had them installed yesterday with the heavy duty leaf packs at a shop and it ran me $3100 for everything with alignment.
