JKS 1.25 bl install question

So I got the JKS 1.25 bl and 1 mml. Gunna be installing this week. My one question is I have access to a shop. How does the install differ if you have a automotive lift? Can I remove all the bolts and just lift the body or one side at a time? Thanks

If you have a lift I woul take the body mount bolts out. Put the long bolts in and lift the body up so it stays in line with the mounts.

You can loosen all the bolts, only remove one side at a time...

x3 And the reason would be that if the tub somehow shifts while all the bolts are out its a PITA to get everything realigned. Keeping one side in (loose, but engaged), prevents that.
