I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT INSTALLING A LIFT KIT

I bought a 4" lift kit off ebay never installed so maybe it will have instructions, but I have some common sense. I was gutted to remove a Tumor so I don't have much strength. Otherwise if I bought a couple jack stands, are they hard to install? I hate to pay someone to do it but if I have to I have to. what do you fellars think have you installed one?

Go to skyjackers website and punch in your truck info. Here is one for an F-250 extended cab 4" lift. I don't know your truck info but here is the directions for this truck http://www.skyjacker.com/image/search/pdf/F840TS.pdf

The lift is easy to install just heavy leafs but other than that its pretty much just take off and replace with new its pretty much just drop bracket pitman arm leafs and blocks in the rear or if it came with leafs and adjusting the steering wheel when done witch is not hard

I would not recommend you doing this yourself unless you have someone to do most of the work! It may seem simple but these things are heavy and some bolts also can be rusted up and you really need to be fit. Getting part way started and then hurting yourself is a big possibility. I do these lifts all the time and even with a 12k lift its work.
