Make sure you take everything off that needs to come off (IE track bar, shocks, tie rod). Me and my friend wasted an hour trying to find a shortcut with no avail. But it is really easy

I didn't take any of that off for my WJ. I took out the sway bar and shock bolts, jacked up the other side took out the coil spring removed the rubber isolator and added the spacer, put the issolator back on, used the spring compressor to slightly compress the spring put it back in, took the compressors off and move to the next. I've seen where it was recommended to remove the track bar, but I'm here to tell you I didn't and it went smoothly (well except for that compressor malfunction that nearly took off my finger and put a hole in the wall. Other than that, it was pretty easy, took about 2.5 hours, with breaks

If you looked under the Faqs post you'll see the BB bold post at the bottom. The installation instructions are there.

I am with IOchick on not needing to take the trackbar off. The only thing I did different was jack up the one side put the spring compressor on then let it down. Use the jack to compress the spring not the spring compressor. Spring compressor is there to just hold it together

I did that also, note my last sentance, that was the cause of the nearly lost finger and hole in the wall. I bought a cheap set from cummins tools and the spring compressor literally exploded when I lowered the jack, it stripped the threads and shot out from under there with a quickness. Now this was my fault for going cheap, I ended renting a good set from NAPA and just compressed the spring with it already out with my impact wrench (basically tightning it a little at a time on each time)

Although the other way suggested is probably a better way, I was just a little gun shy after the first mishap
