I am installing a new TF 2.5 coil lift this weekend in my '09 JKU Rubicon. Any suggestions or tips? I will post pictures as soon as I am done.

Pressure wash your underside, then pb blast all upper abd lower control bolts. Let it set overnight. Make sure you have some quality high jack stands and two jacks. It took me two days, by myself. The result is awesome.

^^Good advice there! Working on JK suspension is not all that difficult. Just take your time and make sure you torque everyting appropriately. And make sure you don't torque your trackbars or control arms until the vehicle is on the ground and you have given it a good shake side to side and front to back. Now would also be a good time to upgrade the bolts in those items as well.

Dremel the plastic piece above passenger side front shock, to remove and tighten the nut with ease.

Make sure you have the flex attachment for impact, and the right metric wrenches help a ton
