I'm looking into lifting my 2003 X. To anyone who's done a SL + BL before, about how much was the total cost. I have a $3,000 budget so far.

Additionally, I probably need to get it installed because I don't know how. Is 3K enough is basically what I'm asking

Thanks.

Labor is what is going to kill you. For the BL, say $200 for parts to take into account incidentals like coolant, taps to chase threads, etc. For the SL, it all depends on the package (or piecing together - could get parts for a PML for under $100). Look at 4x4parts.com

But then a shop is going to charge $100/hour for install, which for both could be a decent amount of hours. Easily budget blowing if you get a full SL package.

And of course you're going to want new tires, maybe wheels. There's another $1k+. Then you'll want to start upgrading the steering to handle the bigger tires...
