Default Tacoma Suspension U-p-g-r-a-y-e-d in Eastern Michigan

Hi folks! I'm new to the 4x4 world and have been looking to upgrade the stock suspension on my 2001 double cab tacoma 3.4l to the ARB Old Man Emu lift kit. Unfortunately they are ridiculously expensive to buy and install in Canada ($2500!!!) so I've been thinking the best idea will be to purchase and install across the border. I'm in Sarnia (just across from Port Huron, 1hr north of detroit) but will drive to get the goods if necessary.

1. Can anyone recommend shops in Eastern Michigan to do installations?

2. Can anyone recommend where to buy Old Man Emu products? Shipping from various online retailers is ~$200 (leafs are heavy) and will take time I don't have as I'm due to drive back out west with a full load on June 10.

Any helpful info would be great!
