make sure you repack your wheelbearings and replace the seals... very cheap for te parts... it would be a good idea to replace all of the cotter pins you will be removing during the install... good luck

i hope you know a decent amount, you'll probably need new brake lines, and try and do some drilling or something to put the dust guards back on, grinding is a must. make sure you adjust the abs sensor just right where it doesn't hit and there isn't too much gap. make sure you bore out the holes on the spindle first.

other than that.. good luck!

yup yup...the chebby shackles should give you somewhere between a 1/2" to 1 1/2" extra lift in the rear depending on springs...not sure on that, but i am sure if you don't put them on your *** will sag lower than the front....

they're like 46 dollars from summitracing.com

Yep, lift kit and just AAL's isn't enough. Do a search here on RF, you'll find the part # for Summit quite easily.
