Superlift install help - WA
 
So I just found out I have access to a covered warm garage with a lift to install my lift kit on Friday!

Anyone in the area not doing anything and want to lend a hand? Its always nice to have a friend or two to help, I have all the tools we will need. Getting started around 9am.

Thanks guys

haha thanks man, I have the rear done already with expo springs just have the front left to do and it looks fairly easy, just nice to have an extra set of hands, got a whole bunch of new stuff from MOOG to go along with the lift so should be nice!

i bet, im jealous man cause i like your truck not lifted, hardest part for me was getting that damn bolt out of the side of the diff to put that drop bracket on, for some reason mine didnt want to come out, btw i only had about 40k on my truck lol........should be fun!!!!!!!

ya I was worried bolts would be bad but so far so good (fingers crossed) the truck has lived a good life with covered parking and regular washes so the chassis looks almost new.

I like the truck as it sits now but off road the rear would rub when flexed out, and has bent up the inside front of the wheel well on both sides. the explorer springs fixed the rubbing but now I need to level it out, and I want to be able to uncrank the bars and get my ride back. so the plan is to only go up 3in or so. to re level the truck.

I'd give you a hand but that's a little too long a drive... if you have any questions during the install post them up! It's pretty straightforward though.
