Looks good, when I installed that rear trac bar bracket I noticed afterwards that the bolt was a little long and was actually making contact with my rear coil so make sure you check that.

I decided to try to cut a grade 8 bolt and let me tell you.....I burned so many blades up it was a mistake, probably should have just went with the washers.

okay so the brake line install was pretty simple, followed the write up on another forum from another planet right down the street. all you need is a 15 and 10 mm socket. and 11, 12, and 17 mm open ended wrenches. i pinched off the line, unbolted the bottom, let the little bit drain out. then moved to the top, where you use the 11mm open ended wrench, don't take out the bracket bolt first, itll just make it a PITA. bleeding was also a simple process, start at the rear passenger, don't remember what the bleeder is in metric size but i just used a 7/16''. worked great. pump the brakes 3 times on the 4th hold, i was alone so i used the extension from the stock jack to hold the pedal down by wedging it between the pedal and the seat. then just go bleed the valve. repeat for each caliper. only used about half a pint of fluid in the end. make sure to leave the engine off while doing this.

Hey man, you skipped the brake lines earlier? There's a penalty for that! (good job)
