Hmm, okay... So basically the tools would be a flat head, phillips head, pliers.... Anything else?

Okay, now it's picture time!

First off though, here are some specs on how much lift I got...

Stock Tire to fender:
Driver Front - 5.75"
Driver Rear - 6.5"
Passenger Front - 5.75"
Passenger Rear - 7"

Lifted Tire to Fender:
Driver Front - 9.25"
Driver Rear - 8.75"
Passenger Front - 9.5"
Passenger Rear - 8.75"

Overall I got about 3.5" of lift in the front, and 2.25" of lift in the back.

Stock



Lifted



Here are some pics of my cv angles, they really aren't bad for 3.5" of lift in the front... They are literally either millimeters within touching each other or just barely, so hopefully what little amount of difference the differential drop makes will be enough.

Thanks! Yeah I'm glad it's finally on! Haha Now I need new tires, hopefully that'll be done in a month or two.

I can't find anywhere to flex it out all the way. All of the snow that I find packed in isn't steep enough to get a tire off the ground... Haha But hopefully some other people and I are going to an Off Road park this Saturday so I can test it out then.

thanks! I'm probably going to edit the original pic in some better software since Instagram distorts the photos so much.

As for the lift, all the parts cost me $590. That's for all four shocks, the coils, add-a-leaf, and new u-bolts. I ordered a differential drop kit to try to get rid of some vibrations I have now. So that's something you may or may not need.

Here's links to what I bought...

Shocks
Coils
Add-a-leaf
U-Bolts

You have to have new u bolts when you do the AAL ? I guess I missed that while reading other threads. But yeah that's the same lift I want to do but I think i'm going to get the shocks from toytec too

Yeah, it's just easier to put new ones on than trying to use the old ones. I'd order the shocks through the link I sent you. It's cheaper there and they have free shipping. Toytec's shipping is overpriced.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I checked my tire pressure today. It's supposed to be at 44PSI and they were all in the low 20's! Once I aired them all up it did get rid of some of the vibration. This makes me think that after getting an alignment to compensate for the lift, my wheels and tires somehow got out of balance.
