03 RUBI Barring problems, you should be driving it by Saturday nite. Then again there's the old saying "If something can go wrong it will". Good luck.

03 RUBI Agree with Beachcomber 100%. That link is exactly how I did mine. Piece of cake!

doclouie If I remember correctly you will also need a bit torx bit for the front sway bar links. A long pry bar is also helpful I mean like 4-5 feet long.

Thanks,
I’ll add the spring compressing tool on my checking list.

You still got to disconnect the front sway bars and shocks but thats no big deal and in the rear disconnect the rear trac bar and shocks. The rear the springs will come right out mine did in the front with some love but putting the spacers in I needed the spring compressor. Then when you remove the bump stops put the spacers in and reinstall the bump stops. Maybe that's a tad more helpful sorry bout that. That's how I did my lift without instructions but maybe Beachcombers link has an easier installation.

Beachcomber This is the best discription of how to do the installation. I used it to do mine. You don't need a spring compressor.

NVRDLMO You don't really need those. You put jack stands under the frame disconnect shocks and sway bar links, use a floor jack to compress one spring then tie the spring with rope or I used 1" wide zip ties(about 8 each). remove spring,replace bump stop, place spacer and spring back then repeat on other side. Springs can be dangerous so be sure what ever you use to compress them that they stay compressed. Good luck

adawg38 Just make sure to rent a coil spring compressing tool from your local auto parts store if you don't already have one. The rest is a sinch as long as you don't have all your bolts rusty as hell.

You'll have to remove the old bump stops anyway to get the spacers in.

1.75 Spacers Installation Question

Hello people.

I'm planning on do this on the weekend of the 24th.
What I'm looking is any advice, suggestion, tips or if there are any special tool that I need to use?
I'm planning also in change the bump stops since mine are all dry and falling apart.

Thanks in advance!!!
