    Well I took the plunge and started the install of my toytec ultimate lift over the weekend. I got the shocks in on both sides and the sway bar relocate done. Drove it around and all is well at the moment. I did come away with a couple of questions:

    1. How do you torque down the top shock mount bolt that is in the back. No problem with the front two, but the back one I just had to guess because I couldnt get the torque wrench to fit back there.

    2. The diff drop can be done with all wheels on the ground correct?

    Tip for those that will do this in the future and have no mechanic experience (like me). DONT use a pickle fork on the ball joints, use the hammer technique, it works. I busted one of my front steering ball joints for no reason.

    So I guess by the response that no one torques that bolt in the back to spec?
