I would recommend having atleast one other person there to help when installing the new coil springs back onto the truck. They'll be able to hold up the rotar and help manuever it all into place. I am used to working on older cars my biggest problem was not having all the metric tools. I had most but it requires 20,21,and 22mm sockets which I didn't have. I think you need all three sizes but maybe not and I just bought all three to cover my rear. I did not order the AAL so I can't help you there. When doing the front you have to lift both sides at once, I jacked them up and stuffed some skids under them only because the ground wouldn't support jack stands. The directions that come with it are pretty good. Enjoy working on your truck, and good luck. If you don't already have a coil spring compressor you can borrow one from Autozone or O'riley.

I just installed the Toytec 3" kit, spacers up front and block in the rear. It's really not that hard. The back end is really easy. The front is a little more involved but nothing that hard. You will definitely need another person, my dad helped me. And you need a spring compressor tool. Thats the only special tool we needed. And make sure you have a jack and at least 2 stands. Otherwise it's just standard wrenches and sockets. Good Luck!!!!
