Home How to install Lift Kits?
Jack up the truck and support with jack stands
Remove the tires
Unhook the four bolts securing your rear U-joints
Jack up the leaf springs of your truck to create space between the leaf springs and the axle
Remove the original block and insert an enlarged one aligning the mounting piece to the hole on the axle and the leaf springs
Lower the leaf springs back down to lock the block in position
Reattach the U-joints to lock the rear suspension in place.
Go to the front of the pickup truck and unbolt the nut holding the tie-rod to the knuckle.
Loosen the nut holding the upper ball-joint to the knuckle
Break the knuckle loose with a hammer
Unbolt the nuts holding the strut assembly to the frame housing
Unbolt the bolts holding the strut to the lower control arm
Lower the vehicle slightly so that the strut can be removed.
Install the spacer on the strut and lock it back into position after turning the strut assembly 180 degrees.
Re-install all the front-end components in the reverse order to how they were removed.
Your leveling kit is now installed.
