I'm from Oreo gone. Were too cheap and practical for such things as lift kits and spiffy shock absorbers here. If you have that much time you aren't hiking or skiing enough!
...oops sorry, Ok seriously now, haven't done them yet , but I sorta want to do stock or .85" for a smoother ride, but I wont be lifting mine.
Hawaii? you in the military?

I have my pass at Mt hood meadows and not gone yet, shame on me lol.
I haven't worked new suspensions, just old school stuff years ago, but if you need a 3rd set of hands I might be able help. I have a cheap/decent floor jack and some wrenches but nothing specialized for shocks.

Ski, usually heather canyon like areas and tree slaloming. I hate to miss good days , but then I had so many up there I will find more hehe. My problem is I went from 185 to 230 in the last yr and a half, but the skiis are 98mm wide at the waist, good powder skis.

But missing skiing when there is no crowd OMG!! thats the big boo boo there.

Gonna leave my suspension stock, but would like better shocks.

I'm hearing that theres some vibration in some cases, but with after market UCAs you can fix the caster/camber, and possible early tire wear. Check the UCA/lift sticky at the top of 2nd gen forum, and perhaps PM somone who has done them.

Sounds good to me. We can do it at my place if you want. I don't know when I'd be in Corvallis next. Let me know.

Well, you'll want a 1/2" drive ratchet and a few wrenches. IIRC you'll need a 10, 14, 17, and 19mm. Oh, and a 21 for the lug nuts.
