Old Man Emu Full lift kit Install

Finally pulled the trigger on the kit. Comes with 881 coils, spacer, new top plates assembled, rear shocks, AAL. Ended up getting 10% off the Toyteclifts.

Anyway i have a 1995.5 SR5. Will have pics up soon.
Im going to start the build on Sat morning. Just wondering if there is anything i should know about will help me out.? I started spraying the bolds down with PB blaster, hopefully the will come off easier.

Pretty straight forward install. I opted to get the longer bolts for the front top plates and put them on before installing the coils just in case the front didn't level out, which it didn't. Go figure. By doing that it will save a lot of time if you have to put the enhancer kit in. I found that the 881's made the front sit about 1 to 1 1/2 inches lower in the front. I replaced those with the 882's and all is good. I do have an ARB bumper with winch on the front so hope the 881's will work good for you.
