we did it following a write up on here, a good press with the right adapters is key.
It's really not that hard.
Depending on miles I would also do the u-joints and seals while it's apart.

I did mine last year and both u-joints and seals are bad at 50k

Mine was the same way stock. Believe it or not the 19/60 springs and Bilsteins and the bolt kit torqued correctly tightened her right up

Fox shocks are nice but pricey. I know exactly what he is saying about the ride on his jeep.
My Rancho 7000's ride the same. Feel everything but not rough or harsh. No other way to describe it.

Thanks a lot!
Yea it drives really nice on road. I drove the JK for about 5 miles stock then had the lift/suspension and tires/wheels put on, so I dont really have experience with how the stock JK feels.

BUT, I hope this makes sense...its a rough, but smooth ride on road.
I feel everything on the road, but it takes all of the bumps nicely. If I drop the tire pressure a little it might feel even better, but I havent done this yet.

This morning I was on my way to work and a squirrel jumped out in front of me. I SLAMMED on my breaks and cut the wheel to avoid him.....I could actually feel the front end compress down from the FOX shocks......They work good

Hope this helps man.

ETA: Thanks Kjeeper, yea I'm just keeping an eye on it for now too, I hope one day I'm not replacing the tailgate though... :/

Haha nice joke lol same for me, I was nervous that the weight might tear apart the tailgate. But you haven't had any issues with a full size spare on the back? I have a 35 on a 17 back there, and when I hit bumps I hear some ugly noises...

ETA well I have the smittybilt plate that pushes the tire away from the brake light and bumper
