I learned to list address as a business when using FedEx. The rates are cheaper and I get my stuff by 11am instead of 5pm.

When I lived closer to the border I just had them ship to a PO and picked it up myself.

Trackbar made an appearance. I think I'll pick up a couple tools tomorrow and start the install when I've got a few days off, so probably the 25th.

I found this which should be pretty helpful: http://www.wanderingtrail.com/Mods/J...Kstockmod.html

Assumptions usually get me in trouble....but can I assume I don't need to extend anything (brake lines) since I'm lowering?

I'll take a look later, but shouldn't the previous owner have installed a new trackbar and bracket already for his much lift?

I "assume" (LOL), that no, you will not need to extend anything since you are lowering your Jeep. Cue Star Trek intro monologue "to boldly go where no man has gone before..." (Lowering a Jeep).

Someone at RK needs to hire this guy who put together those installation instructions!! Those look fantastic compared to what I had to work with.

Weird. I'll just post here rather than risk the PM not going through.

I would definitely appreciate the help. I'm only used to working on motorcycles and the 3 hour job or so would turn into a multi-day event for me.

I was debating whether I wanted to tackle it myself (after picking up some extra tools), or just use that money to pay a shop to do it.

If you're still willing to give it a go, let me know when is a good time for ya, what beer you like, and how much your time is worth!

I unfortunately had to leave my compressor behind when I was posted.

No need for a shop to do it. Pretty straight forward install. Just get some torque specs for the bolts. Ill try to fit my home compressor in the heep since itll be MUCH easier with air tools, especially the air ratchet lol

Did you have all the parts? I MIGHT be able to this weekend just gotta dbl check.

Heineken would be one of my top choices and for labour dont worry about it

I found a detailed set of instructions with all the specs so that's solved. I'm going to see if I can find a torque wrench on sale; mine's not big enough.

As for parts, I have the four new springs, the antisway links with all hardware, the relocation bracket, and the trackbar. That should be everything!

I would certainly come to you in order to simplify all this; then you wouldn't have to move anything around.

I work 10PM - 6AM tonight, Saturday, and Sunday, so if you've got the time to help me tackle it during the day during that time, that would be awesome. If not, it can certainly wait until it's convenient for you!

I'm in a parking garage so horizontal space is plentiful, but vertical space, however, not so much. But there should still be enough room to lift the jeep.

And I hear ya about the rain...

Whatever works best for you!

Also, I'm available from 8AM - 8PM Saturday and Sunday, and any time from 8AM Sunday until Thursday. So whatever fits your schedule best works for me!
