Pain in the ass.
I'm not going to wait in line just to ask someone to activate the compressor... and if I'm doing all 4 tires, it's going to take a 2nd trip.

You'd think there wouldn't be lines in the gas station with everyone using plastic and Speedpass... but there they are. 4-5 deep.

Maybe he wants to be ready to have an alignment done post-lift install.

CM, did you read Boyd's thread? It's a very detailed DIY for removing and installing new LCA bushings and hardware. The parts and tools required isn't expensive. Heck, you could probably buy new LCAs for less than what that shop quoted you on labor. Boyd's ball joint thread is also very helpful.

You still don't have to remove the LCA's to install a lift , and even with seized cams I was able to get 3 , 0 , 0 due to my LR UCA'sc

Not really free when your gas is $2/per gallon more than places that charge you a buck in the off-chance you need air. Californians are so proud of all their laws while their state is the post-child for how not to be a free-state.

Not at all. The gas station compressors are automated. Walk to the front of the line ( if necessary) and you simply ask the clerk for the daily code (3 digits). Punch the code into the keypad to activate the compressor, do it multiple times if necessary.

I'm just worried about removing the two lower bolts on the LCA and the cam bolts so that I can remove the coil over. Unless..... I don't have to loosen the LCA cam bolts...

your just swapping the coilover???

you dont need to remove any UCA or LCA's bolts, it is easier to take and removed the UBJ connection and pull the UCA up out of the way, I would not touch the LBJ unless you absolutely need too

I didn't say the LCAs needed to be removed to install a lift. I said the alignment cams may need to be functional for an alignment to be performed. You may have nailed it with frozen cams and aftermarket UCAs, but not everyone will be so fortunate.

As long as the LCA can pivot down far enough to get the strut in place (and it should), you can install the lift.
Your truck is old enough that the LCA bolts, alignment cams, and bushings are probably a rusty mess, so you should plan on replacing them - BJs are probably worn out, too. Order new parts and follow Boyd's DIYs. Other than having a press to fully seat the new bushings, the rest of the required tools are fairly common and inexpensive. You should be able to find a shop to press the bushings for a reasonable fee. The rest of the job looks like a pain, but it's straightforward.

Getting the truck aligned will probably require changing out the bushings, but none of that should be a problem when installing your lift, though.

I installed a yellow top after running a red top for about a year, hard to say no for a new battery less than $140..the + terminal didn't reach so I made a cable extension and electrical tap to seal it up.

lucky you I still had a pic on my phone.
