that will be a pretty good write up there man!!

That might just cover it. Maybe, we all can install different lifts, so as to cover all the bases.

im up for installing whatever lift whoever wants, and doing a write up for it(either myself, or whoever the truck being lifted belongs to), and even if we have a few of the same lifts reviewed or whatever.....there still may be something that wasnt really discussed as much on one lift as there is on another lift install..........and then for sure everything will be covered that way.

yeah, i'll try to be as thorough as i can when doing it so as to all the bases but for sure, if you guys can get some other lifts and do some write ups on them, or even just do more on the same, im sure many will find it really helpful.

the bottle jack trick is where you turn the jack upside down between the fenderwell and the upper control arm to jack the spindle down so to speak...it makes it easier to squeeze a coilover in

Ah ha! That would make it easier...

If I have to take my coilovers out again for adjustment, I'll remember this. Because it was pretty tough to get them out without taking off the UCA...

Hey Chris - I'm still a few months out from buying my lift but I would love to be a fly on the wall when you do a lift or two. I'll be happy to bring my camera and help with the writeup just for the learning experience.

I'm also pretty good at holding a trouble light, gophering for tools, refilling beers and staying out of the way. Yeah, that's how I roll.
