duaneduanet I helped my friend do his. I would recommend either getting the optional bolt kit or go to Tractor supply with one of the factory bolts you are to reuse and get all new grade 8 bolts. Tractor Supply is the best they charge by the pound. You might pay 5 bucks for all the hardware. It's worth it.

That is what I wanted to say. The bolts that hold the springs have a metal sleeve that sits in the bushing and this sleeve likes to seize to the bolt. I used a angle grinder with a cutoff disc and snaked it between the mount and the spring. The bushings will be shot but you will have new ones with the kit. Other then that they aren't to bad to do. Double check that all your stands are in the right place so your jeep doesn't fall on you. I have almost done it and its easier to do than you would think. Good luck!

Finally lifting! Any Tips?

I am finally putting a 4" lift kit in my YJ. plus, 33" tires to boot!

Any tips from those more experienced in the ways of suspension and drivetrain. I want to make this a weekend project not a week LONG project...
