Ohhhh damn that sucks!!the top bolts were so hard to get to!!sorry to hear that man!!but yeaa it's a nice lift even though it's my first so I don't have anything to compare it too. It's obviously a tougher ride than stock but so far I don't even care..it's a jeep right?haha

Just did this last weekend!!! Sorry for your pain. It took me 4-5 hours to drill and re-tap them fricken upper rear shock mounts. UGH!!!

extended length bits and an air drill is what got me close enough to the frame to drill the outer ones.... short bits and angle drill for the inner ones.

I also had a Drill Doctor to clean up the THRASHED bits every hole.... lol!!
