That's kinda broad. What kind of lift? What do you have ready? Is this your first one?

Just relax kid, once you get the drinkin part down and the rest will come naturally...

Just have plenty of PB Blast and the proper protective gear as to not get yer self hurt,

How much lift you going to add?

Should also add antisieze so when he has to take it apart and correct something he put in wrong he actually can.

I would say have a grinder ready with a cutting disk. PB Blaster probably wont get you through all of them. You will get the nuts off, but the side of the leaf spring that doesnt have a shackle can be a problem. You get the nut off and the bolts will be seized to the inside of the old bushings. I have hit them with a 7lb hammer to the point of almost bending my frame and they don't come loose. Cut them on the inside against the bushing as soon as they are stuck. No point even messing with them. Also, make sure you have a big thing of anti seize. I use a good amount of that inside the center of the new bushing to keep them lubed, you can use grease of course if you have it. No thing as too much in the busing, it keeps them rotating freely for a long time. Also, make sure to rip out your trac bars. You probably have an adapter to connect them after the lift, but there is no point. Rip them out and get better ride quality. You will probably need to cut those too. Also grease the bushings that hold your sway bar while your at it. They can be tough to get grease into, but it is worth it. If you have a T-Case drop, dont put it in right away. Good chance you wont need it. Test drive without it as long as your slip yoke is into your TC far enough. I think 2.5" might be the most you can do without a TC drop of new driveshaft. If anything else pops in there I will add it. Good luck

I would get the braided from Quadratec. Brakes aren't something to mess with. Since your lifting it you should get some sway bar disconnects too.
