Installation on Rustys 2inch lift

My Friend has a 2005 Wk. He asked me to help him install his lift that he bought. Its a rustys 2 inch. Is this a pretty easy lift to install? Is there anything that i need to lookout for? Thanks alot.

the install to the back is fairly straight forward. The front is a little more tough. Make sure you have a ball joint puller, spring compressors etc.

also do a search on here, there is a lot of other info out there....

My wife and I did a 2 inch spacer lift last night in 3 hours on our XK. No spring compressor, no ball joint puller, no lift. Spent at least 30 minutes looking for nuts that were left out of the kit.

move the Coolant reservoir (push nut/&8mm), and fuse box(pry tabs/&10mm) from the inner fenders, remove 4 nuts from each strut tower.

jack up/ use jack stands, you will need your jack under control arm.

remove sway bar link bolt from LCA

Remove bolt from lower strut fork on LCA.
Remove top Ball joint nut

remove 10mm bolt from brake line on fender well.
remove sensor wire from back of strut.

remove nut from tie rod end

put jack under LCA ball joint nut, leave 1-2 inche space for lca to drop

push down on rotor while hitting upper spindle on UCA ball joint, nice clean direct hits with BFH

it should drop down, do the same thing with the BFH on tie rod end.

Remove the strut, bolt on the spacer, evenly few turns at a time until tight.

Now reverse

probably missed some stuff...done off of memory...good luck,

or try these:
