NOW.................................
when you get the coilovers shoved up in place start the two inside bolts on
Then position the clevis to where it should be headed in the right direction
Using two ratchet straps , attach one on each leg, then to the other side and then easily pull them into place
This is another area where people spend too much time on a simple task
and yes, ......it really work , wink wink
Oh and make sure your brake hose in inside/behind the spindle before bolting the ball joint up
Sorry...not following this one. LOL I'll have to read this when I'm looking at it. Hmmm

Onto a new question as im getting close (hopefully) to finishing the lift. I noticed my muffler is on its last leg. I purchased a Gibson cat-back system but can decide on what catalytic converter system to get. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Replacing the cats as well ? Why ?
Plus a lot of the replacement cats do not flow as well as stock MOPAR ones do
My 04 with over 233,000 miles still have OE cats and doing great

Gotcha, I was thinking it was a good idea to replace them after 100k or so. I'll keep it as is then. Thanks

If that is the case I need to change all 3 of mine out, all well over 100,000 miles LOL
But if having issues, then yes if no, run her

How many hockey pucks needed. I see OP mentioned 12 bit I assume 4? Finaly order springs looks like they are out of stock will see how long it takes.

It all depends on amount of lift, what wheels / backspacing etc
IF
stock wheels , say 245-75-16 tires and 2.5 inches of lift then two per side ( 2 inches of bumpstop )
rule of thumb is an inch of bumpstop for every inch of lift

12 ??

what springs did you order / brand and number , what do you have up front ?

No. I said I ordered 12. I have 8 to spare. LOL. If anyone needs any, just pay for shipping and I'll send you some. :)

Just found a 4 pack on Amazon $9.99 free shipping. Probably cheaper than you would pay for shopping now days. Thanks for the offer.

No problem Yes, I was looking at a build list and misinterpreted it. Thought I needed twelve. Thought it was a bit much at the time but went ahead with it. LOL

Can anyone share a link with me for 2010 front sway bar bushings? The front is bigger than the rear. I thought I found the correct ones but when they came today, they were the same as the rear.
