Leveling kit

Got my leveling kit and shocks installed yesterday and it wasn't difficult at all. The biggest PITA was we were using some fairly old spring compressors and they wouldn't compress the spring enough. After fighting with that for a few hours trying different configurations, we finally rented a couple from Checker's auto parts. With the rented units, it only took about a half hour per side!!! It wasn't too bad, but it was about 102 yesterday and if we weren't using my garage and drinking cold Coors Light, it wouldn't have been any fun!
I'm so freakin' happy with how it looks now. Pics to follow later.

congrats, I put a 2" leveling kit on my 2wd Super Duty Friday. It took me about 1 hour to do the first side then about 10 minutes to do the other side. I had to pay more for my alignment and new cams than I did for the leveling kit.

Yeah, he has coils. I have leafs though, and they are not bad to do. Really make it look the way it should.
