    Workin and goin to school.... and a lot of huntin makes it hard to find time to install anything. Anyways what I was plannin on doing is the bilstein 5100s up front and back. I was just curious of an average install time for someone with average mechanical skills. I think this lift will be good enough for what I do.

    Rears are a pretty simple install, I'd say no more than 20 minutes. The fronts are another story though. You'll need spring compressors to get the old shocks out as well as putting the new ones in. If you've never used them before I say take them to a mechanic and have them install the spring onto the shock for you. The compressors are a dangerous tool if you've never used them before, so don't take that chance of loosing a finger, an eye, a limb or even your life.
