so you’ll likely have to pay for labor as well as the parts to do it. On average, it costs $1,300 to lift a Toyota 4Runner.
The $1,300 cost to lift the suspension of your Toyota 4Runner breaks down into the following average costs:
  • $1,000 for a suspension lift kit
  • $300 for labor
The costs will vary depending on the type of kit you buy and the mechanic you go to. Certain kits like a simple leveling kit can cost as little as $100 to $300, but more intense suspension lift kits can cost as much as $3,000.
