Dude! I'm excited for you! Money well spent! PB blaster the crap out of all shock fasteners, and track bar bolts in advance! Keep an eye on where the coil springs go!

Make sure you put the taller springs in the correct position....there is a difference in spring height side to side in this kit ...

I am wrapping up my install. Doing this solo for the most part. You will definitely want some help.

BL is relatively easy. Do your self a favor and disconnect fuel filler tube from the plastic mount. This has a chance of snapping when you jack up the body to put the new picks in. Motor mount can be a real PITA. Especially driver side cause you have to take the whole bracket off the engine cause the AC compressor will prevent that bolt from coming out. Do your self a favor and insert the bolt opposite direction when you put back. Rokman does a really good YouTube video if you need it

You're going to have the most trouble with the front springs. Don't waste money on a compressor, the bump stop gets in the way. Instead disconnect your upper and lower control arms. Let the axle drop down place new springs in then use two jacks to bring it back into place. You will want a descent come-along to get those control arms back in place. This was the biggest pain in the ass but my neighbor helped me getting it done. Be prepared to bang the hell out of a pickle fork to get the track bar down ( if you got the adjustable track bar) the rest of the front is pretty simple considering what you are doing.

The rear is a piece of cake. Disconnect your sway bar links, support the pumpkin with a jack while everything is on stands, lower the rear as far as it will go. You will have to push down a little bit but the rear springs will pop right out. Remove the bump stops because you have to add the spacer anyway and raise one side to allow more droop slide in new springs. There is enough room for your hands to work with installing the spacer, cup, and bump stop. Move to other side same thing except you will need to jack up the side you just put the spring in.

Put on tires take off the stands move to your track bars and re-centering your axles with a come-along and do your sway bar ends for the rear, setup quick discos up front.

Jack front back up after everything is said and done, do alignment.
