I finally had some time this weekend to install my 2 inch BB it took about 5 hours. The hardest part was trying to get those front springs back in after the spacers were put in. I would recommed spring compressors to anyone who will be attempting this! The best part of it all is when I went today to get the wheels aligned I forgot that I had purchased an alignment package. That was a nice surprise, now I have unlimited alignments for the next 3 years!!

I was itching to hit lost creek today with this nice weather. Hopefully soon! Let me know if anyone is going out that way soon.

Glad to hear it went in smooth!

It's been about a week and all is well, the only complaint is that it is a super stiff ride. Do you think if I replaced the stock shocks that it would help?

Kevbz 01-19-2012 09:11 PM

I've heard shocks can definitely soften the ride, I've heard Rancho RS5000 are softer than stock , but I guess it's trial and error to find the comfort area.
