Some notes about the install:
The front was probably the most time consuming the first time around. Had to snip a couple of plastic clips that were holding some electrical wiring near the wheels. Also had to pull the breather line down and take the bracket that holds the brake lines to the axle out so I could drop the axel enough to get the new springs in. The shocks came with some rubber bushings, I wasn't able to use both and still get the nut on top to thread. So I used the new bushing on the bottom and reused the factory one from the top, gave me just enough thread to get it to grab, jacked the axle up and it went smoothly after that. Having a dremel for the install is def a must. I needed it to bore out the holes on the sway bar for the new links and also in the rear for the new holes that needed to be drilled for the bracket back there. Having two floor jacks was also really nice to have when it came to getting the axle to the right height for either taking apart or reassembling the various pieces.
The directions were pretty straight forward, with the stock mod install you actually skip a lot of the steps bc they're for the other lifts that RK sells. For the front, there is one spot that can be confusing. The directions tell you to install the new track bar in a new hole that is mounted on the axle, there is no such hole, we thought for a while it might be the bracket that came with the kit, but upon further review that clearly was meant for the rear. The track bar itself was probably the most challenging part of the install in the front. Making sure you have an even number of threads on either side, make sure it even fits at all back in is sometimes challenging. Getting the jam nuts tight without twisting the other joints and changing the length of the overall bar took some work to finally get it right. After that everything just goes right back in and buttons up fine.
As for the rear, this was very easy except for the drilling of the holes in the old track bar bracket. There's some awkward angles that you have to work at. Def have some safety goggles in case the metal shavings go flying like they did for me. Other than these two holes the rear was a piece of cake. I'm a little concerned about the rear brake lines having enough slack in them for full flex, but until that rear bracket is welded to the axle I can't go offroad anyways. First time out after that I'll be keeping an eye on it to see what needs to be done. The front brake lines need to be zip tied somewhere too, thinking about the coil bc its not a sharp edge and the coil shouldn't really move a whole heck of a lot. Also on the rear the directions didn't say specifically when to reattach the swaybar links, but I think its pretty obvious you need to do it. So other than those few minor items, it was a time consuming process to fiddle away with some of the brackets and other things, but the directions walk you right through it and it looks awesome afterwards IMO
If anyone has any questions about the install or anything else let me know. I would do it again if I had to, but I don't plan to remove too much of this stuff for some time haha.
