Pretty simple really, some make it more difficult than it really is .
If you have any questions we've done 23 of them here
plus helped others with theirs at their place.
2.5 -3 hours and you're done
What lift are you doing ?

Oh.......
I refuse to install them,
but you'll still have to do the same amount of work as a full coil lift
Just take your time
Its not hard like I said
Any questions as to what to remove etc just let me know

No it just takes a whole lot more gas, I had to run with the overdrive off if there was even the slightest hill or it would shift back and forth a lot

Yes stock ones work fine, just make sure you install them/tighten them with full weight of the Jeep on the ground.
