Also be sure to spray plenty of wd-40/rust penetrant/etc on the stock castle nuts. Mine were seized on and had to be ground off
The rear will be 100000x easier if you have an impact with a deep socket to remove the u bolts too.
I'm going to order the fronts preassembled. Don't want to do that myself, especially if it'll only take an hour or so to install if preassembled. I'm not quite following you on the UCA install part. Then again, that's why I'm asking you guys for help

Are longer lines only required for >3" lift? Do you think it's worth spending an extra $75-$100 for new lines just for an easier install? Granted, I'd have to spend the time changing lines and bleeding brakes before even going through the leaf pack swap...
