leveling kit installl

I just bought a 2.5" drop shackle leveling kite from rough country suspension, i was wondering how long it will take me and if i will need any special tools for the install or if im better of having a professional do it ?

If it is just a shackle it shouldn't take very long and be very simple to install.

You will need the adj track bar and longer shocks, if a F250 you need f350 blocks to level..

its not a bad install, you will want a good breaker bar with a cheater and a good set of pry bars.... other than that its pretty straight forward. if you know someone with a lift it will save some time and your back but deffinately not necessary. I believe it took me and my dad about 4-5hrs to put mine in and we werent in any kind of hurry.

If i did it again i would deffinately go with an adj trac bar.
