I wish I could have finished, but I am now waiting on more parts. The factory rear bump stops were disintegrating, and the isolators were in bad shape. The front spring isolators are also in bad shape; one has a piece hanging off and they all show cracking. I have ordered a new full set of upper and lower isos for all 4 corners, and new rear upper bump stops. I went ahead and ordered new front shock mounts as well. The rear suspension is removed, and the axle is resting on smaller jack stands until parts come in. I did get the hockey puck stops installed on the bottom rears though. I also bolted on the JBA y link extension. The front upper stops are disintegrating as well, but I already have the teraflex ones for that . Tomorrow, I plan on getting the rest of the front apart and replacing the ball joints, bushings, and tie rod ends. I think I'll wait to install the JBA UCAs until the shock assemblies are ready to be installed.

Didn't install the rear lower bumpstops already did you ?
If you are waiting on the uppers I assumed you didn't
But if you did , making it harder on yourself to install the springs
Install upper bumpstop, then spring, then bolt in lower

Oops! Well, given that the axle is only held on by the lower control arms right now, hopefully it won't be too bad getting the new springs on when the time comes.

Rear is done and sitting on wheels again!




The passenger side spring is somehow a bit off center at the top. I may jack it back up and see if I can wiggle it around some.
