    Do it yourself and it's free plus you know what's going on down there. Pretty simple with YouTube :thumbsup:

    I keep thinking about doing it myself...the older I get the more I pay people to do shit...I'm getting lazy! I've got plenty of tools maybe I'll try it on Tuesday when I'm off what is easier to start on the front or back? That way if I get stuck I can drive to the dealer and get them to fix it haha..

    The front should be just a drop in replacement if you have pre assembled coilovers. The rear is a little harder from a leaf standpoint but if you search there are tons of threads on doing them in your driveway. If you are at all mechanically inclined it will take you a sunday afternoon and a case of beer.

    Why are you taking off the 2 bolts for your LCA's if you're just putting in the shocks? Shouldn't have to mess with the upper or lower CA's if you're putting in shocks or coil overs. The only time is if you are replacing them. Unless theres more to your lift than pictured.

    Lossening the lower control arm allows it to drop free and out of the way of the spring and shock..there are also the 2 bolts from the lower control arm to the bottom of the rotor...were the ball joint is don't know the term for that one. Anyhow I was not able to get any of those loose without an impact..in fact I bent my one breaker bar in the process :shock: So I'm just gonna let my one mechanic at work do it..hopefully with the rain it's slow today and he gets a chance :pray:

    Yeah you right, lol. Been a few years since I put mine in. I'm trying to remember how I did it. I do remember soaking the shit out of the nuts and bolts the night prior and the morning of the install. Did you get a new leaf pack for the rear or were those AAL's?

    Right on. You should still be able to at least do the rear by yourself. The first method I tried took me about 2 hours on the driver side. I tried a different metod on the passenger side and it too loke 20 minutes, lol. On the driver side I made a huge mistake by pulling out the whole leaf pack out. I undid the center bolt seperated the leafs and put in the AAL and couldn't compress them back together. Ended up using the new center bolt and nut to compress them which in the end fucked up the bolt. Then it took everything I had to use my legs to line up the rear attach point on the leaf pack to get the bolt back in and have the leaf pack installed. It was a mess. On the passenger side I used 2 heavy duty C-clamps, one on each side. I removed the perches and undid the center bolt with no problems. Once undone, I loosened the C-clamps just enough for me to fit the AAL in and tightened the clamps back down then reinstalled the new hardware and perch and was done. Might save you a little money if you do the rear yourself. Just a thought.

    Thanks for the tips! At this point I'm just gonna let him do it they are charging me $375 installed including an alignment so really about $290 installed and it's easier that way. I know I can do it but with my arthritus I don't have it in me anymore! I love doing other things but suspension and stuff like this I just don't have the tools I need to make it easy on myself like an impact..I am going nuts though waiting till Monday! :goingcrazy:
