It's pretty straight forward. Just take your time and you'll get through it. Go to the Superlift website and you can download the full instruction manual.

do you have 4.10's in the rear? if not i would hold off till you had matching ones in the rear, but you can always score a expo rear with 4.10s to compliment the whole thing real nice

Thanks guys! Yeah it helps when u meet the guy that is the only ifs truck in the group and u tell him to do a SAS haha and my rack and pinion has a massive crack in it so I think its kinda important to fix that, and no I don't have 4:10s in the rear I'm still debating on if I want to buy my cuzins set out of his Mustang for $100 and have my dad set it up, or go to the JY and pick up an expo axle....
Also if I have expo leafs, Chevy lowering shackels, and the stock lift block for my rear set up do u think I will need much more lift if any?

well that is the exact rear set up im running. i have the 4inch super lift stuff in the front, and expo leafs, stock blocks and chebby shackles. and with my "B" bars maxxed on the driver side and matched on the pass side i sit about 1 inch lower in hte rear....but my leafs are more sagged that normal cause ive seen people get more lift out of them that i did...but u might not mind it since u got a prerunner bumper, and u were planning on getting a dbr kit i assume u wont mind....just reaim ur heads...i havent yet and i have to drive around with my brights on cause they shine above peoples cars...and my normal lights shine right in there window...lol...here is some pics so u can see

You know, if you go to Superlift's website, you can download the instructions and parts list. I did this when I bought mine used to make sure I got all the parts and I bought all the right new hardware.
