I Hope there's no hang-ups. but there's always that one bolt that can make things come to a screeching halt. PB blaster should help .

I've got a fix for you if its the front leaf spring bolt, but we'll go over that if it happens.

This is gonna hurt in the morning.

Well today I started on the front lift but... on my way out to the garage I slipped on some ice and fell on my tail-bone (hard) . went back inside and took some aspirin then proceeded to work through the pain.
Front lift is done except for disconnects. I'll get back to those this week.
Tomorrow is the rear lift depending on how the tailbone feels.

Do you have a large T-bar lug wrench, it'll have the size you need for the leaf spring bolts, and give you the leverage to get them out, they're a b!tch.

Loosen the tensioner for the e-brake before you drop the rear end.

Lift

Yesterday I finished the lift and the rear went smoother than anticipated.
On the rear I decided not to pull the whole leaf pack out and put the AAL on, it worked great.
Today I drove it to work but had to run a small spare cuz one of the 31's the valvestem's broke. All 4 tires are on now and it rides great.
The lower bolt for the swaybar I was unable to get out so I drove it with no swaybar till I get it out and can install the disconnects.
Tire rubs the front edge of the fender while turning so I'll be cutting that as well.
Pics will come soon.

nah . They looked like they were in decent shape.

Still trying to get that lower bolt for the swaybar off , so I can hook up the disconntects.
I did trim the front edge of the plastic for the front bumper but the tires still rub a bit when turning. So I may add an inch spacer to level the front out. The "rake" thing is for hotrods I gotta have mine level.

pics soon, its just hard to take pics when its always dark when I get home.

PIC's

Some lift pics.
Front lift on .


Putting the rear AAL in without pulling the whole springpack.


All put together and bent those tabs the opposite way to prevent the retainers from coming apart.


Done .

Did you have brake ext. for the front? In the wheel well behind the tire you see the rubber grommet held by a metal clip, pull it out of the clip and put it back upside down. There's your front extension. That'll give you room to flex without worrying about the brakes
