possible stupid question about northridge grade 8 hardware set

I tried to search first but it turned up nothing. I recieved my Northridge4x4 grade 8 hardware set yesterday that I plan on installing this weekend along with a teraflex performance leveling kit and Fox shocks. The kit came with no directions at all. Will it be pretty self explanitory once I start pulling bolts out of the control arms and trackbars as to which bolt, nut, washer, etc. goes where?

Did you read the sticky thread ?

It's pretty easy. Pull a bolt out and replace with the new one. Leave all loose and torque after you are all done with jeep on the ground.

8x control arm bolts and 4 x TB bolts.
1 14 mm for 2012/2013 front Tb frame mount. 125 ft lbs for all lowers

For the lift. Teraflex/you tube has some good vids. Search also PDF online.

I can scan and post the directions that came with my set if you want...it lives under the cargo area in my Jeep...because I hoard things.

Hold onto your 9/16 bolts (if you're using the metric bolts from Nrothridge)! If/when you upgrade your track bars, you'll want those Grade 8 - 9/16 bolts.

Also, unless you have a pit or a lift, be prepared to curse mightily when attempting to torque these bolts. Why? The factory hard to reach nuts are flanged so they hold themselves in place while you crank. You're going to have a good time getting a wrench on a few of them.

there are no stupid questions, only stupid people

Check the sticky above on replacing the bolts, but its very obvious.

Were you taking about the bolt or lift install ?
I know people have asked in the sticky and there are post with instructions.

Most important part is not torquing the bolts until the jeep is on all fours (giggady)
Don't want to bind the bushings.

I was asking about the bolt install. The lift came with directions. I emailed Northridge and they explained the longer bolts are for the control arms, etc. Like I said possibly stupid question as I'm sure I would have figured it out as I started pulling bolts. Really just wasn't completely sure what all bolts the kit replaced but now I know.
