Installing lift this weekend, any last minute tips?

The time has finally come, I will be installing OME springs, Bilstein shocks, top plates and extra iso in the back. New UCAs as well.

I have read write ups, watched youtube vids, etc.

I just wanted to know if anyone had done theirs lately or when they did wish they did this or that a bit differently to make things go a bit more smoothly.

The UCAs is the one I hear the most complain about, so any helpful hints here would be great.

I have to say Im pretty hyped...

Just make sure you have a ratchet swivel and a couple long extensions for the driver's side rear A-arm bolt. And LOTS of patience. Also, make sure you have a torque wrench and torque specs and wait until the vehicle is back on the ground before you tighten everything up completely. Good luck! Nothing bonds you closer to your Jeep than putting on a full suspension lift yourself. I would never let a shop touch my suspension (except for alignment purposes that is)
