As long as it is the correct length, remove old one, put new one on. And make sure you torque the bajeesus out of it. Its really just as simple as that (as long as it is the correct length)

its easy. just make sure you put the upper bolt on the same way as you took it off. otherwise you wont be about to "torque the bajeesus out of it" lol.

if for some reason it does not line up correctly put the upper bolt in and snug it up. with the jeep on the ground, wheels on, have a buddy move the steering wheel back and forth. this will move the body back and forth over the axle and help you line up the lower bolt into the axle. then torque both bolts to specs. make sure to measure from a given point on each tire to the body next to the coil spring. be sure that its the exact same distance on both sides and be sure to measure in the exact same spot on each side. if its not the same or dang close you may need and adjustable track bar
