The dealer doesn’t want to do the job if they are quoting you $1200. Most of these are quoted at a 2-3 hr job so $300 sounds fair, but know that probably doesn’t include an alignment which will be about another $120.
Yeah a local shop quoted me $350 to install and $50 for front alignment. I called the dealer for a quote hoping to possibly use my rewards points but they haven't called back yet. $1200 is nuts. I can probably do it myself as I have replaced shocks on my truck before and may do it if the dealer quote is nuts for me too.

Got mine back from the shop today! Non squatch Badlands. The dealership charged me $1221 bucks.. said it took them 7hrs just for the spring perches.. lol. I was expecting that though. 🤦‍♂️ I also had them put in the JKS tierod sleeves, the bronc buster steering rack bushing and since they were there my SRQ rear shock skids.
Anyhow, here are some pics. They maybe firmed up the ride some but it's not harsh. I'll get off road here in a bit and test out the articulation and offroad habits. Anyhow, enough talk. Here are some pics.

@SVCOFFROAD the shop I dropped my truck off at is going to call you when you open today. They think you might have sent the bilstein version (I have a non-sas Big Bend) but are open to something they might be missing. Here are the pics, highlighting the difference. Anyway to overnight the correct set to him? My bronco is already disassembled. Thanks for your help. Order number: #2411 (I double checked to make sure I ordered base model).

We'll be open soon. Have them give us a call and ask for Jarrett. Its hard to tell in the photo, but they look correct. You might have more paint or a slight tolerance change on your stock strut. We'll work through it with them 🤙

Thank you for the quick response.

Here's what he said:

"That diameter is 3.500” the outside diameter of the spacer is 4.300”

I plan on installing mine today but I'm having a hard time finding torque specs for the suspension parts. I've searched on here and found a few things but not everything I need. Any help would be appreciated.

Before and after. Currently it raised the front 1.5" and the rear 2". So still a slight rake which I'm fine with. I'll check it again after driving a while and getting an alignment. Definitely love the height it setting at now!
