HELP: Leaf Spring install on 2/27 or 2/28

Hey AZ guys!

I have my allpro springs and extended brake lines to install before my road trip next weekend to Williams, AZ.

Can anyone help with this? I've swapped out one of the stock leaf packs before but would appreciate some help, especially since I've never done any brake work before.

I'm free all day friday and saturday so I can work with whatever you guys have available, can even come to you. My plan is only contingent on when the brake lines come in (they should be in on thursday or friday though).

So anyone in? I'll have the standard 12-pack compensation program.

And I could use a bigger floor jack for the install if someone has one

I haven't done this before but can offer myself to lend a hand if you like. I can help out anytime on Saturday.

It's mostly just an extra set of hands that would be nice (and maybe a big floor jack if you got one).

Cool man, I'll be letting you know as soon as I find out on the brake lines.

Just checked, looks like it'll be in on Thursday for the lines. Anyone have experience with installing them? It would be appreciated

It sure is! Thanks again for coming out.

Now to get that bracket so my ABS light goes away (battery reset didn't work).

The BPV bracket? I not sure thats it... People run without that a lot. How long did you leave the battery unplugged? Im going to do some more research as ive never dealt with ABS before...

What ive come up with is that either the brake fluid is low, the brake fluid in the system is dirty, the sensors need to be cleaned, or the system needs to be bled again (which is what im leaning towards)...


Or you can rip out the ABS buts thats a little far.
