Review the included instructions and verify you received all parts and hardware before proceeding with installation.
If you are having a shop install your kit, don’t schedule the appointment until you’ve received your product and have verified you have all the components.
If installing the lift yourself, verify you have all the necessary tools to complete the job. (If required, ball-joint presses, strut compressors, and other uncommon auto tools can be rented from many auto parts stores.)
Clean your truck before installation. Whether it’s a home or shop install, cleaning the underside of your truck will save you time, money, and undue frustration.
If you have rusting components under your vehicle, use a penetrating catalyst solution (such as PB B’laster) to easily remove rust and corrosion that would otherwise make it hard to remove nuts, bolts, and other parts.
ALWAYS get an alignment as soon as possible after lifting. Failure to do so will result in faster wear and tear of your tires.
Tighten all hardware after the first 500 miles after installation. After that, it is recommended that you check hardware every oil-change and tighten up if necessary. Refer to your instructions for torque specs.
