the hardest thing is removing the stock upper mouting shaft from the stock upper control arms. you might wanna use a air chatter gun while you got the control arms locked up it a bench vise. other then that installation was smooth and so is the ride.

I did it myself and thought the that the part about flipping the ball joints was confusing as hell! Don't forget to remove the pressed bolts Might have to torch them off! I did!! After getting the pressed bolts out drill a 9/16th hole in your strut or T/c rod as they call it, then put 2 washers on the holes near the coil on the lower control arm. Then put on the strut, and then put on the lower ball joint. I am going to attach the picture that helped me out a lot! Good luck and if you run into any problems come here cause this place helped me out a LOT!!!

Don't think you'll get it done in a couple hours, give it a day and make an appointment for an alignment as soon as possible, you won't want to drive the truck too far because your tires will be screeching the whole way. Don't put your new tires on till your all done!!
Good Luck!!

Hope i helped, this is the S*** i learned or had problems with!
