Rough Country 6" Lift installed.....
So I installed RC6"....took longer than I expected...off course without power tools.....other than that my whole body is sore.....I do have directions from RC...but from the looks of it some steps where missing, but it was a no brainer. product/quality meets my expectation. proper tools where in hand.
Day 1 (12/29/2012
Rear was simple but took longer than I expected...the blocks had a slight angle on them...I was trying to figure what faces the front. Then comes to which extension bracket goes where...2 of the 3 hole brackets where no brainer as per direction..but for the abs I used the z bracket and for the top bolt on the differential I used the 2 hole bracket. Thats how it worked out for me. Shocks where installed piston down/ with extension on top.....
Day 2 (12/31/2012
Started the Front on the a.m, inlaws came we ate lunch then back to work. uninstalling was simple.......installed the rear/front crossmember/differential brackets, so I got done about 8ish cause half of the time I was BSing and drinking with neighbors...
Day 3 (1/1/2013)
Started again in the a.m. started working on the struts. installed new struts with preload installed, put everything back New Knuckles with seal/LCA/Steering Link/struts/hub/rotors/calipers/wheel adapter/new skid plate but had trouble lining it up on the holes........ finished around 4ish.....
Today, my buddy is installing the Cooper Discovery SST 325/60/18 on my 18x9 Mambas...cant wait...also alignment will be this weekend....
