I always take pics when I work on my toys...except for this time. I was pressed for time and forgot my camera. This is the guide that I followed, it was very simple. If you want I could take a pic of how the plastic weld on the housing looks behind the glovebox. Not that people will be dropping your glovebox to see if you've cut it up, but I would recommend a heat knife over cutting if you have access to one.

Make sure you measure before and after if you have a chance...the OME springs seem to be really far from the listed heights for some reason

I'm @ 21" front and 21 1/4 rear w/ EMU coils too. Bilstein shocks though. I always wonder how the EMU shocks ride. How much did you pay for the shocks? Kolak?
Dont forget to Loosen the Control Arms it will help the premature deterioration of the bushings, but more importantly it will ride better. I only loosened mine coz i swapped axles. I found that after a year of riding it w/o loosening the CA. Makes sure its on its weight when tightening it again.
Another must not forget, Get a longer end link on front and rear. Rides better too. Specially when the body is twisting on corners and bumps.

Favor can you reply back w/ the part no. of the front and back. I wanna know if i have the HD or MD, I asked for the MD. Tnx...

Have not gotten shocks yet, sway links are on the list as well too.

Why would you loosen the CA's?

like what i said it will help the premature deterioration of the bushings, but more importantly it will ride better, And then tighten it again once the coils and shocks are in.


its discussed on some topics here. just sharing my experience...

I thought the box on the left is for the shocks(i ddnt realize that its for coils too). the box on the right is what mine looks like when it arrived.

Loosen the control arms to ease installation of the lift, then put the vehicle on the ground and then tighten them back up, otherwise they will destroy the ca bushings quickly.
