I know very little about cars but I'm considering installing my new bilstien 5100s all the way around the truck and a new ICON leaf pack.
I've got jack stands and jacks and all the tools needed to perform the install including the torque wrench.
In regards to removing the coil over using a spring compressor and putting in the 5100 back into the coilover.... I'll be taking the assembly to a shop to have done because I understand this can be a dangerous job.
I'll be using the following links for help.
Front Suspension Install
Factory Torque Specs
After the install I'll be taking the truck to get aligned and get new tires and wheels.
With all of that being said, what are some of the risks involved in doing this myself? What are some of the common mistakes that could make this install go wrong or lead to suspension failures down the road?
Am I missing anything in regards to instructions and/or tools to get the job done right?
Is this a no brainer job or am I in over my head?
Any other advice?
