Husband did our Safe-T-Plus install this weekend. No ramps or impact wrench.

I did the CHF front and rear in the driveway in about 1 hr 15 min. Hardest part was finding the stupid metric sockets in my toolbox..lol

Will be adding Safe-t plus in the near future.

We had Camp Land in Burns Harbor Indiana install ours. Made a huge difference in the way it handles. We just got back from an 1100 mile trip (our maiden voyage) from NW Indiana through Michigan and Ontario to Niagara falls. We stayed at The Branches of Niagara 3 nights on Grand Island NY (highly recommended) and took a cab to the falls. We came home on I90 through NY, PA, OH and IN. Stayed one night on the way home at a KOA in Sandusky OH.

We started smelling an awful smell on the third night and found out one of our house batteries under the entry steps had boiled over. We stopped at Camp Land on the way home and had it replaced under warranty.

The worst drivers we ran into were in Ontario. They all do at least 20 mph over the speed limit. Ontario also had the best roads. The worst roads by far were in Michigan. During the entire trip we only saw 2 troopers and they were both in PA.

Just FYI, the mechanic quoted me $649.99 for the blue Safe T Plus (part only), I found it on Amazon for $499.

We got the Safety Plus installed for $750. Worth every penny.

just curious, why you chose the Roadmaster anti sway bar. how do you like it so far. I just bought an ACE 27.2 and want to do similar upgrades.

If I thought it was going to be 200 for the install, I would have done it myself before I took it to them. Lesson learned.
Don't know where you live, but if anyone else is near Atlanta ( near Six Flags) Safe-T-Plus will install it, and adjust it for free.
