I don't have that brand lift, but I assume install will all be similar or the same. Does it come with new shocks, control arms, and springs? What height lift is it?

Does it come with longer sway bar links for the front? You will need a SYE with CV driveshaft or a transfer case drop with a 4" lift to eliminate vibrations. If your lift doesn't include them, you will probably need adjustable rear upper control arms to adjust the pinion angle

Ok. So I went with skyjacker lift instead. Anyone done this lift. Wondering if I will need a spring compressor or is it possible to do without?

If you remove the shocks and jack up one wheel all the way, it should allow the other side spring to come right out.

Remove bottom shock bolts, sway bar end link bolts and track bar. That should give you all the room you need to remove and install springs without a compressor. Jack up the opposite side as mentioned for removal & don't be afraid of pry bars during installation.

The only thing to be very careful around is your brake lines. You also need to be certain they are long enough for your lift!
