not to thread jack, but how are the auto hobby shops where you are at? what base is that? here in germany, we have 3 in my area, but only 1 of them is worth anything..

good luck on the install, cant wait to see pics!!!

be carefull when ordering from 4wheelparts.. they screwed up half my order.. and when you get the superlift kit, go through it piece by piece and make sure everything is there, and its the right part.. when i got mine, the front shocks were the incorect ones, and it was missing a few misc. stuff..


Your truck is going to like BA when you get it on though!

I'm in viginia beach and the hobby shops here are pretty nice. There is one that I'm not to fond of but it's still not too bad. They all have the basics with lifts and all the tools you need so it's cool. I'm kinds nervous about not getting everything cause that's just my luck but we will see. I can't wait to get this done it's killing me

kinda curious about how the heck to clamp the torsion keys but whatever i guess ill figure it out
That's why I had a mentioned puller, set it up 2 jaw and it makes it cake. The puller grabs right on the outside of the tbar bracket and when you tighten it the key comes up off the plate so it slides right out safely.

Hopefully you get it before I will. I ordered my spindles from them last Wed. (the 4th) and I was told I'd have them in 2 weeks. I called 2 days ago for a status check and they told me they wouldn't have them at the warehouse in CA until the 21st. Gerrrrr!!!
