Lift Kit Install

Hey all,

How involved is it to do a 4" lift on a 2002 SD?? Is it something that could be done in the driveway over some beers or what??

Thanks

Since its an 02 its still has leaf springs on all 4 corners.
Should be a matter of installing new springs, blocks, maybe shackles, shocks, and a dropped pitman arm.
Shocks can be hard sometimes but they're no biggie.
It shouldnt be a big deal, you can get it knocked out after a full day of working on it.

The most involved will be the front end. Youll spend most of your time/energy there. Dont forget about yer brake lines, man.

Borrow a pitman arm puller from an auto parts store.
