Have fun--the second ones are easier- Do the rear first--then the front will seem easy.
The first install will be the most difficult--after that--everything will be easy.
Little heads up--you will need to eat your WHEATIES.
Before you ask--FORCE IT--you will see what I am talking about.

do the 2nd gens have the adjustable height on the shocks?
If they do--Highest setting w/the AAL is best.
Set mine mid range(1st gen w/aal)-wish I had put it to the highest setting--saving that for another day.

Do you have above coil spacers or spacers that are in the coils? How is your ride quality as it is? I'm sure you will notice quite a difference. My truck came with spacers as well and they are terrible. You feel every bump in the road. I'm saving my pennies for the setup you bought or OME. good luck and let us know your results!

So it's no better for above coil spacers, I have a set I was going to swap in to replace my in coil spacers to see if that makes a difference... But now I might as well just wait until I can afford new suspension.

Yes it is true the ride is like night and day.So much smoother and tracks better,they were able to get my alignment in spec.I am so much happier now.Also my rear went up by 1 1/4" and front raised a little over 3/4 of an inch.

It's 5100's all aound,eibach springs and a 1"block because i already had an AAL and i knew 1" would be perfect.The front is set at 0.85 and also has the 1/2 " to plate also so i have 3 1/4 up front.It dose not feel too stiff and so far feels great.
