EVO Enforcer 3" lift No Instructions!

Help my fellow jeepers I just received the evo enforcer 3" lift and it came with no instructions. Most of it is self explanatory but I dont know the size of the hole to be drilled for the front bump stops. They appear to be self tappers . But i have no idea the size drill bit. Anyone had this lift and can give me some pointers. Like how long my front lower control arms need to be set at. Also if you are looking at the drag link flip kit and the front track bar relocation bracket I would defiantly go with synergys instead of EVO. That piece was a royal PITA! so many bolt all crammed into the center it was a two hour plus or deal to install very hard access to get to both sides of the bolts.Thank you in advance

There is no downloadable instruction pdf on the companies website?

That sucks! Is it something you were looking to install this weekend? If not, I would shoot them an email and have them email you the instructions.

You can drill straight through and use a nut. Or take the bolt to a hardware store and find a nut that fits. Once you figure out the size of the bolt Google search a drill/tap Guide. This will tell you what size drill bit to use.

Start your front lowers at 23 1/8". Measure pinion angle or get a alignment. Castor should be between 4° and 5°.

For the rest of the install, several other manufacturers do provide detailed instructions, including torque specs. You can download their instructions and it'll be 98% the same.

Rock Krawler posts good instructions, so does Rancho.

I would just use a 3/8" bit and use a bolt and nut from the bottom ala AEV. Either that or experiment on a thin piece of metal drill a hole and see if the bolt fits.

The Evo Enforcer is a great lift kit but I have seen this kit installed before and these complaints are common. There is really no excuse. Mel and his shop team are excellent fabricators but for the rest of us mortals such issues are a pain. Unless you are installing now call Mel at ORE and he will talk you through it.

IMO, the rear TB tower installation is too complex. The final geometry is good but the bracket design could use some more engineering.

However in general, what I usually do in case like that with bolts is just test overlay various drills over the bolts to see which one just barely cover the shaft of the bolt sso you can see all of the threads. Then I go 1 size smaller for a perfect fit. This always works well for me particularly on self-threading bolts.
