That's reassuring. My dad and I are planning on doing it together too. Are there any specific tools needed?

No special tools, but air tools make it quicker...take a look at the video posted by Alex...I used the same one...just follow step-by-step and you'll be fine....good luck!!

do yourself a favor and soak everything overnight with a penetrating lube like liquid wrench. there were a few that i missed and you could tell...

Thanks guys. I feel a little more comfortable with the idea of doing it ourselves now.

So I'm about to order the fat bob's kit, what's the difference between the standard add a leaf versus the longer add a leaf?

dont listen to him. hes half retarded but no one told him yet. shhhh

the longer aal is for a smoother ride. it wont ride as harsh and shorter aals.

Interesting do they both have the same result though? Seems like they wouldn't offer two different ones if it's the same end result (ie same height) and one rides better than the other, seems like a no brainer.

How did I know Adam would be waiting around to bust my balls when I make an educated guess btw the longer aal still sucks when it comes to comfort, have it on mine and it feels like my rear suspension is all welded together there's no give in it.

Did you replace your shocks? I've heard it's not supposed to be bad with the new shocks.
