Ok. I realize I'm double posting here, but I meant to start this thread before I started the build, but never got around to it. So...
I did the lift install myself two weeks ago. Took me, my dad, and a buddy 17hrs to complete. We started about at 9am Saturday, finished 2am Sunday. That being said, it wasn't really difficult technically, we just had some issues. Mainly with drilling the frame / mounting the trans spacer & long arm brackets, and installing the rear spacer. It's limited clearance, and the factory used about 6 gallons of thread locker.
My buddy has a camera that will take time lapses, so we took a vid of the build. Unfortunately, we didn't know that the camera would close the file at exactly 2min, so the vid ends just before we set it back down (I'm the goofy lookin' dude in black

duh... can anyone read the directions...???
The Final result.
The last pic was taken the following Monday after I drove it to work. My buddy (same one who helped with the lift) and I were looking at it and noticed that when we set it down, one of the springs was not centered in the rear retainer.
Not having a jack or jackstands, it took us a little while to figure out what to do about it. Then we had an idea... IMPROVISE
Soon as we picked it up, the spring snaped back into place, and has stayed ever since.
