Welp, finally set my mind on this setup. It will be on my door on Thursday or Friday this week. Those of you know about this lift or have it, any special instruction/notes/anomaly on installation? I am planning on isntalling it myself. I hope the coils and the shocks will be pretty easy. Haven't figured out yet what I'm gonna do about the bushings. Don't have a press tool and don't want to buy one. Maybe I will just take the control arms off and take'em to the local shop. Any MUD member(s) in the area willing to help with the installation? Please PM me or post up. Any help would be MUCH and GREATLY appreciated.

Also, has any of you installed additional components with this lift? Such as Sway bars' drop brackets and or bump stops extensions etc..

Thanks

Is it an OME lift, heavy, J?
I think so. MAF calls it (as you may know) OMEKIT-80J. I know the whole debate about there's no 3" lift, it's either 2.5" or 3.5"..etc. I think I asked the same question to Steve or some one else over the phone and they told me the same thing.
