sweet deal...it would def help if ya had some buddies help ya out..it isnt too bad but it would be a stretch to do it urself for the first time by ur self IMO..make sure u use jack stands and stabilize it safely while ur under it...
good luck

I just put my 4inch pro comp on the othre day. My biggest thing to you is..get PB BLASTER! lol..and get some heat (torch). Pitman arm puller..I got mine from autozone and it was like 17 bucks..had to modify it a little bit, shave the sides to fit right. But the trick I found to be best was to tighten it on and then gave it a few wacks with a hammer. Then tighten it again, wach it again. repeat that process for a few times and it should come right off..**DO NOT USE HEAT ON IT THOUGH!** and when i say wach it. Hit the bottom of it where you tighten it at. that took like an hour no joke before i figured out that tight and wack thing lol. grab some of your friends and just have fun. its not that bad.

i think the hardest part is going to be lifting the truck high enough so that when you stick the new leafs on your axles wont hit the ground.... remember to put the jacks on the frame and get at least 4 6ton stands.......

The hardest part of the lift and Raul can vouch for this. The rear add a lift. It was the hardest till i called him at like 2am and he help me. I personally thought the front was easy. Looking back to it now, the whole thing was easy just time consuming more than anything. But Raul is right with the jack stands it was a pain in the butt with my 4". Alot of up and down with the jack to get it right. Oh and on the front, remove the 10mm bolt that holds the brake lines in the wheel wells that will make it so much easy to move around at first i tried with them still connected and then removed it what a difference it made. Stupid things like that took up SOOO much time. Just attack it and you'll do fine.
