I plan to install in a couple days. I've read the instructions and searched the forum but have a couple of questions:
1) The 9000xl shocks come with zip ties in the boxes. What are these for?
2) Do i have to tap the holes that are drilled for the bump stops? The screws are described as self tapping and I don't have a tap & dye set (yet).

Any other tips/tricks are appreciated.

The zip ties are to attach the red boots to the shocks. Make sure you slip them on prior to bolting up, then zip tie the "slotted" end of the boot to the shock.

You'll need to drill a hole of correct diameter. No need to tap. The diameter hole recommended will be smaller than the screw, and the screw will tap the threads when you install.
