    I got my Old Man Emu lift kit today. It's the one from Toytec that comes with the spacers and AAL. My plan was to save money and install it my self, but given my lack of experience I'm starting to puss out :(. I've searched the forum and the web for more detailed instructions for the installation but can't find anything dumbed down enough for me. Any suggestions? Supportive words? Anyone in the area (Mesa/Tempe) want to help with the install? Any help is appreciated
