    OK so I am going to put those parts on my truck saturday! super pumped! but i am really crunched for time and i need to know how long this is going to take me and my uncle (who is a mechanic) to install. I am also putting some new tires and I hope to install all the parts, get my tires put on, and get the front end aligned in one day. We are going to start install around 8 a.m. and I am hoping this will be enough time for everything.

    EDIT: If I do not have enough time to get my tires put on and my front end aligned, how far can I safely drive until I can do this?

    It'll take you couple hours 6 to 8 maybe and you can probably do it in a day

    It can be done in a day of you're proficient and have the correct tools available. Personally, I wouldn't plan it that tight because frankly, shit happens. Finish one end before you start the other end just in case.

    It took me around 6 hours after getting everything set up, by myself with my own spring compressor.

    We have the right tools so I am not worried about that. The reason I am planning so tight is because I have to be at work Sunday morning and it is a good 2 hour drive from where i am working on my truck.

    I set my front billies at 1.75" and drove for a week before getting aligned.
