Do It Yourself?

Many of these tips are easy enough to do yourself to save on labor costs. But to be frank, there aren’t many ways around money when lifting an IFS truck (shown). This is a complicated suspension that requires the entire front end to be disassembled, pieces whacked off, and new brackets installed, so unless you’re really knowledgeable, it’s best left to the experienced to modify--which will cost you, but it will also save money in the long run compared to you screwing something up. Other suspension systems are straightforward, so do what you can yourself.
