Got my lift kit from Christo last week and getting ready to install it soon. I appreciate any inputs from guys/gals who have done these before. Done a couple of Js setup and now it's time to do the mother of all lifts. TIA.
Umm, take out the old springs and shocks and put the new ones in?
Seriously, it's just nuts and bolts and you are replacing the front arms anyway.
I'd do the brakelines first, so you have all the flex you need to get those new springs in, that would be the only thing.
Depending on what other work you are doing at the same time it may be easier to pop out the axle. When I did mine the front axle was pretty much completely gone over (wheel bearings, new TRE's, rotors, pads, calipers rebuilt, seals, felts etc.) and it was much easier to do on the bench than under the truck. A FSM, air tools and a decent torque wrench are your best friends.
Good luck on the install, if i was in H town id lend a hand. What you going to do with your j's?
i would def. recommend an extra set of hands. popping out the control arms might helo to get an extra bit of distance for swapping out those big beefy springs. has your truck always been in TX? the standard PB blaster treatment applies to all nuts and bolts for a few days before hand. other than that, you may notice the sway bar bumps the driveshaft when you have it up on the stands and jacks and so on but when you get it down and done, it will settle in nicely and clear just fine.
did you get the adjustable panhards and such as well?
