if they are pre-assembled (pretty sure they are), then it's not a big job at all... only a few bolts per side to remove and then even less to install the new stuff. you'll need a floor jack and some basic hand tools.

check your cv angles... you may need a diff drop... or you may find that you're alright.

it's a pretty straight-forward process. make sure you've got a 4 lb. deadblow hammer and a ball-joint press and/or a 2/3 gear puller (you can rent from autozone or o'reilly's, etc.). i could not have done the removal of the stock ucas without those.

as close to flat as possible. a little bit of downward angle is ok, but you don't want too much.

Step one: remove your sway bar
Step two: Don't take corners nascar style
Step three: take it off road
Step four: think about the awesomeness of no sway bar

it doesn't cost anything. you put down a deposit that's 100% refundable within 48 hours usually. trust me, you'll wish you had them when you're mid-way through tearing your truck's suspension apart and you get stuck and have to walk to the nearest auto parts store to get 'em!
