i dont see any glaring mistakes that might have been made. What makes you think they did a bad job?

Probably becuase the tires look so small now, just need to upgrade the wheel and tire package or just the tires and you will be set.

On the very top of the coilover there is a silver plate, you can screw and un-screw that to adjust your spring rate/ride height. You might need a special tool to do it but that's how.

in the lift kit it should have came with rather large looking hook typ thing ... that is what is used to crank them .... where the threads are there are 2 rings .... the one NOT touching the coil spring is the locking ring ..... the ony touching the coil is the one you will actually 'crank on' to crank the coils up.

also when doing this make sure to get aligned same problem as torsion bars messes with the alighment specs

Looks pretty dang good, 35"ers might be a tight fit, torsion bars cranked to the max?

Doesnt look terrible with stock tires! I dig!

Looks good again--where did you get it done? Just a little mom & pop shop?

Ditch those shabby anti-sway bars. They really hinder articulation and put a damper on ride-quality.
