    look at that kits they sell online. nothings difficult with the right tools. Are you looking to do full suspension? just body? just the front end? we need a little more info

    X2 on more info. A quality suspension kit will take every bit of 8-10 hours on a rack with proper tools and suspension experience. A cheaper kit will take longer b/c fit and finish won't be as nice.

    Body lifts take a few hours.

    How much are you looking to spend? That will more or less determine your options!
