BDS Suspension Install

Does anybody live near Newark/Jersey City, NJ and want to help install a 3.5" BDS suspension lift? I have just about no idea what I'm doing.

I pick it up on Thursday and was thinking of doing it this weekend.

Beer will be supplied.

One suggestions I have is to start spraying EVERY bolt that needs to come off as soon as possible with penetrating oil such as PB Blaster, in the morning, afternoon and night. It will make your day a heck of a lot easier. Also, make sure you have a good set of drill bits on stand by because you will have to drilll screws. Good luck, I can't help this weekend nor am I an expert but just a few things I learned doing mine.

Started the lift. So far, old shocks are out, but leaf springs are a bizzy to get out. Got off the shackles fine, but the other connection is too rusted. :/
