...thanks, any other important info i should know about the lift, things to look out for along with the shock studs? did it take long to install? thanks
Its a pretty simple lift, with few main parts:
1. Radius arm drop brackets: The stock ones are riveted in. For this I used a cutting torch then a center punch to pop them in. But a grinder would work too.
2. Passenger side axle drop bracket. The one is pretty simple, its just a large plate. Get the bolts out and bolt the new one in.
3. Driver side axle drop bracket. Pretty much the same as the passenger, just a different setup.
4. Shocks are easy - just be ready to put in a new stud. I ended up taking the entire radius arm off, cut a new hole with a cutting torch, then bolted the new studs on. Id suggest you pop out the spare tire; itll make the driver side rear shock a lot easier. If you're up for taking your muffler out, itll make the passenger side pretty easy.
5. Brake lines: I put new ones in front - theyre easy (connection just above the spring mount), but mine were pretty rotted so i ran a new line from the drivers side to the passenger side.
If your 94 is anything like my 94, be ready with a lot of wd40 or PBBlaster.... apparently they dont use anti-seize from the factory. Also, be ready for a rain of rust when you work the rear shocks.
