    I'm looking at treadwrights since they are pretty cheap, but save up buy the coils to knock the front out in 1 shot, then do the ucas. Might look into the 886 if you want to add a bumper and winch down the road

    Yes I'm too cheap to pay someone to do something I can do myself, at the very least you have to attempt to try. only thing I havnt done was welding the sliders since I don't trust my welds for that yet

    Coil wasn't bad, the UCA bolt was a bitch because I wanted it like factory going from front to back a lot of guys said install It in reverse its not likely to fall out and I didn't like that.

    good luck mate. Don't forget to pull/disconnect the sway bar prior to pulling any other components. UCA bolts are easy to remove, just tap on the flat part of the spindle with a sledge until the taper gives way. You don't have to he-man it and don't hit upwards on the bolt. The bolt will just flange and won't budge.

    to be honest with you, do it once do it right, wait until you have the coils and do it all. Its easy enough to do but I would not want to tear it all back apart to do it over again. I will once Uncle Sam give me my money back. I am looking at going ICON this spring

    Ya I just saved up instead of buying something small for the meantime, I love my ICONS, it's easy to take apart but not worth doing twice

    I've done my front coils twice now and other people's front coils as well. The cost doesn't justify the work required. front coils are so easy to not spent 2300.

    Though, I love my icons, but I need do them again to upgrade the springs to handle the armor I added.

    Rear springs however, complete replacements are a pita. you end up having to cut the bolts, etc, etc.

    What springs are you going to upgrade to? I am already 2/3 the way with my skids and running a US Off Road Bumper with winch and am concerned I will have to preload the hell out of the ICON springs to get the same ride height.
