It's not an easy task. That's why I didn't even bother installing them myself. You have to bleed the brakes, replace the brakes, and all of this other bullshit. I suggest paying someone to do it for you.

It's all bolt-on stuff. Piece of cake if you've done coilovers and UCAs already.

Pull the wheel, pull the brake caliper (no need to undo the line unless you're replacing the brake lines), pull the caliper mount, unbolt the steering linkage, unbolt the UCA from the stock spindle, unbolt the spindle from the LCA, move bearing and stuff to the new spindle as needed, reinstall in reverse.

Do x2 and get an alignment. Nice afternoon job with time for beer and pizza.

oh so your not replacing the brakes, as in new different parts. he meant that you take the brakes off then put them back on...of course youd have to do that haha my bad just read it wrong

You missed the most hardest part of the whole project: grinding the calipers.

Call Camburg. They've got a set that they include with their long travel kit that will work perfectly.

Ah...yes..... The smell of burning metal. Nothing gets the 'ol adreanalin flowing better than some hot sparks, and a small fire in the garage...

People shouldn't shy away from the easy stuff. Seriously, give one of these projects a shot and you'll be amazed how much confidence it builds.

It's like folks who go to a shop for brake work because they prefer to have it done by a "professional." It's a damn important system, which is EXACTLY why I do brake work myself. Nobody will put as much care and attention to detail into my truck as I will.

Replacing brake lines takes 10 minutes and bleeding brakes takes a 10mm box wrench and someone sitting in the driver's seat. Get some wrenches and start turning them!
