Getting ready to install...

So I am getting ready to install a bunch of lift components and Im looking for advice and input on what Im about to do. I have an 08 regular cab 4x4 6 lug. Its bone stock right now except for the 17" stock wheels that replaced my standard 16"

So here is what I have to install up front:
Bilstein 5100s with Eibach/toytec coils set at 0 w/toytec 1/4" spacer.

And in the rear:
Bilstein 5125 (f4-be5-6248-h5) with 10.17" travel and eye-to-stem adapter
I will be getting a leaf pack with a toytec 2" AAL from a friend
All pro u bolt flip kit

I know I will need to modify the bump stops.

I want to make sure that I have everything I need to make this all work. I will be installing sliders and LCA skids so that will add a little more overall weight to the truck.

Thanks

No worries man. Its not a lift package, per-say, its a hodgepodge of random lift components bought over the course of a year that I pray will all add up to a decent lift that fits my needs. Im just hoping it will all bolt up and wont give me problems lol

If you have a ball joint remover laying around use it... It will be a lot easier taking the strut out and put the new one in with having the Tie Rod disconnected.

Never had a problem damaging the boot with one. I used one on my truck and had no difficulties with it...

I remove the tie rod and was real easy after a couple good wacks on the knuckle that holds it. Double check those shocks because my 9.25" 5125's are just short enough with bump extensions. If the 10's are too long ill be selling mine soon.....hit me up!

For the front I would recommend disconnecting the UCA and removing the sway bar. Worked well for me and there was alot of space to get the coil over out and new setup back in.

Thanks guys. All the info should help it go a little smoother.

As far as the components go, what have people done to raise up the bump stops? An is there a point that you can raise them too much?

why do you need to raise the bump stop??? YOu could always get the bumps from wheelers.

As far as I know if the shocks are too long they will bottom out before hitting the bump stops, and potentially explode. But seriously the shocks can be damaged if they bottom out too hard I think.

The AAL will probably prevent the truck from ever hitting the stock bumps anyways, think wheeler's has bigger bumpstops
