I'm sure I might break away for a bit. I'm assuming that with a 2.5" lift it's just pucks? Do you have tools? Let me know details.

That would be such a big help! No pucks. New springs and shocks. Thats all. I have pretty basic tools. No air tools. No spring compressor (but I dont think you need one.) No jack stands. Lot of will to learn though!!!

No problem. FYI though I'm 16 so that is why I may not be able to but you never know. And if I can I may be in need of help with my cj5 I'm rebuilding.
