Last Minute Help

O.K. my lift and tires are in and i'm gonna be putting them on this weekend with a friend of mine... any last minute tech help or advice to offer up to a good ol' boy. My lift is a combo lift from Rocky Road. It involves a 2" suspension lift with coil spacers and shock extensions and a 1" body lift (spacers).

thanks a bunch...

you'll be ok. both of those are pretty straight foward. i'd go ahead and spray all the bolts with pb blaster or something of the like to help them loosen up a bit. but other than that, just take your time, follow the directions and you'll be just fine.

What he^^^^ said. Just spray everything you are taking off with a penetrating oil, and read all of the directions the night before (even if some of it doesn't make sense until you are under your truck). Good luck this weekend, and take pictures. Let us know how it goes!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

Take your time loosening the rear top mount bolts for your rear factory shocks. Theres 2 bolts on each shock that you can spray the tops of if you use the little red straw from the can of pb or whatever and spray through the frame of the jeep. These bolts will be the most corroded and or rusted and have the hisghest probability of snapping off before you get them out. The longer you can let the pb work its way in the better.Take your time and good luck.

Let me echo everyone elses sentiments about taking your time.

Also I would suggest you do the BL first and get that out of your way. It's easy and shouldn't take more than an hour or two. Pain in the ass on it is the two mounts in the rear cross member.

Then with the rest of it just unbolt your shocks and sway bar links and then you should have no problems getting the old springs out and the new ones in.

ok i don't know if you'll have a hard time getting the spacer over the springs or not but if you do then disconnect the sway bar and a VERY helpful piece of advice is to use the bottle jack and place it between the axle and the frame and then jack it up so that it presses the axle down so you have room to get the coil or spacer in. its a really, really, easy install. for the front left driver side you can open the hood and there will be a hole that you can stick your socket/ratchet through to get to the top shock bolt. for the passenger side there is no hole because the air box is in the way so you'll have to put your socket in the small space up there. you may need a wrench to reach in there. we used something like that.
