haha ohhh boy!

ok first, you're going to need all the normal hand tools the kit tells you.

Also, do yourself a favor and go buy some PB blast or some other penetrating lube and shoot thr CRAP out of all the bolts you see on the install directions. Leave it for as long as possible. Mine were lubed twice a day for two days before i did mine... comes from a long history of rusty bolts on other jeeps, i did it overkill, lol.

Dont be shy to get the jeep as high up in the air as possible and get as much wheel droop as possible. makes it easier to get to the springs. I did mine on a lift.

Another one, DONT disconnect the rear control arm if you can help it. We did it (as per the rock krawler directions) and the rear end ended up twisting, it took two 3 foot crowbars to get the axle to rotate....

I'll think about it and add. good luck man.
