I posted in the regional forum for help with no replies so I may just pay for it to be done. I would love the experience so if anyone is interested in helping me out and live in the Portland Metro area I'll supply the beer and pizza.
Its all basic nuts and bolts stuff. I have rebuilt front ends on cars and trucks before so I know the basics. I also have a pretty good collection of tools. I have always thought in life that if that guy can do it then so can I and that I care more about my stuff than anyone else does.
This was my first suspension lift (did a body lift on my CJ-7 when I was 16, won't do that again). I followed the advise in the threads below...
It took me about 5.5-6 hours by myself in my driveway. I would have preferred help but I couldn't round anyone up.
Good luck and there is no shame in having someone else do it...it's just fun to save the coin for another mod.
Been thinking about moving out to Oregon my wife wants to go to a school for nutrition out there, but its not gonna happen for at least a year.
