I had to have the kit removed and a new spring installed this past friday. I'm out over $400 with the labor and the new spring and no lift again. I was just about to order tires. I'm not sure which way to go next. So much for trying to save a few bucks I guess.
Sorry for your bad luck. I have yet to have any issues with the setups I've done.
Do you have any pics of the stack he did on the extension at the top?
FWIW, if it wasn't right, why did the shop continue? Why did they charge you money for something that they should have been able to see wasn't right for your application? When people bring me work that they want done and I see that it won't work or is unsafe, I simply give them the correct solution or I completely refuse the work. It's that simple.
Here in Denver there are hundreds of shops
that do work. Yet there is but a few that I would ever let touch anything I own. A reputable shop will refuse to do sh!t work regardless of what you pay them.
And on a side note: the shops I have let work on my equipment, none of the guys are ASE certified. The young lady who does all the machine work for me was taught by her grandfather, the alignment shop I use has no computers, the axel/gear shop is ran by men who have real world experience. It's beyond important to find the right people to do work.
