    I just put in 5100s in the front today. took about 2 1/2 hours total the first side took longer but the other took about 1/2 an hour. I was able to do it on shop class at school so and all the tools and lifts which made life very easy! I dont have any AAL or TSB in the rear and I set them at 1.75" and it sits level.

    Those times sounds right. I'm pretty good at tearing down the frontend by now and it takes me 2 hours with hand tools and a floor jack so you are doing great!

    Looks really good! I maybe looking into a set of billies for the front soon?

    thanks! the only thing I got hung up on was knocking loose the uca ball joints and needed a special tool but other then that every thing was straight forward.

    not sure on the 2nd gen but on my first gen i just unbolt the 4 bolt for the lower ball joint and swing it all out of the way. much much faster and easier.
