Hey guys, after much research i had come to the conclusion on what stuff i was going to purchase for lifting my truck a total of 3 inch. So i decided to start last night at about 7 PM and stopped for the night at about 1 AM. My dad and i planned 4-6 hours for complete install well we were off by maybe 10 hours . We started on the rear end by installing the leaf springs and found out that shackles and front leaf bolts were frozen in place and after beating the bolts for about an hour we torched and grinded the bolts off. I did not order new shackles for the rear which i should have but i never thought everything would be so hard to get out. Then i found out i needed longer u bolts i asked All Pro Off Road specifically "Do I need longer u bolts? i am going to buy new ones anyways do i want them like 1/2 in longer?" and i got this reply "You will not need longer U-bolts for the install. Stock U-bolts will work fine." Well needless to say the stock U-bolts were about 3/8 in to short they will work but the nut only threads on half way so i was kinda pissed about that because i have to get the truck done by sat night i live 200 miles away from my parents so it would be the only way to get home. So i will try to get some more pics and final pictures of the lift it seems like it is going ok i am glad i have my dad to help idk how people do this shit in there driveway.
