    I think I'm about ready to install my lift and just want to make sure I have everything I need. I have the following:

    5100's front and rear
    Dakar leaf springs
    New bushings
    Extended U bolts

    Am I good to go? Is there anything else I MUST have before I get started?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Its a good thing you got extended U bolts. I got DAKAR leafs in the back too but I just used the same U bolts. Probably not the best choice but I re-threaded them so I think I will be okay. 5100's were a good choice too

    Only thing I think you may need are extended brakelines. I'm not 100% sure but I think if you install the dakars you should also get the longer brake lines

    breaker bar, PB blaster and maybe even a torch or cut-off tool depending on where you live (sometimes those things get really rusted on there). A little patience and an extra set of hands doesn't hurt!

    Have the Dakar leaf pack installed, no extended brake lines needed.

    I would suggest the drive shaft spacer. You might get some vibs if you dont. GL
