It was really simple. It was my first lift install of any kind and I was surprised at how easy it was. My wife and I installed it in just over 2 hours. I did each side individually up front and dropped the rear axle as a whole. Here are some pointers based on my install. There is a brake line bracket on the frame, and one on the axle near the shock mount. You can drop the axle far enough by just disconnecting the one on the frame but its way easier and you'll have more room if you disconnect both. The front springs were really easy to get on and off and the spacer and isolater are really easy to place. The sway bar links are easier to remove from top to bottom and easier to put on from bottom to top. The front took me an hour total for both sides. On the rear, there is a bracket that holds both e-brake lines to the body right in front of the muffler, disconnect that. On the frame there is a brake line bracket as well as a small clip that holds the metal brake line. Disconnect both of those. The back springs come off easily and the trickiest part is getting the teraflex spacer in place. Use a little grease and the spring isolater will slip right onto the spacer. When putting the spacer in place, a little grease will help as well. A lot of people suggested using a bottle jack to get the rear spacer to pop into place and I found that difficult. I was able to muscle it into place by laying on my back and just pushing upwards and it popped right into place with minimal effort. The back re-assemlbes nicely as well. My total install time was 2:10 including rotating my tires and drinking a beer between the front and back. Good luck and let me know how your install goes.

i found that putting some fire on the rear isolator got the rubber a little gooey and it was easier to get seated.. YMMV.
