    x3! I would never attemp to install a lift! I would probably end up having to go to a shop afterwards anyways.

    Well, got the new mount on the differential, lifted the differential, bolted it up, installed the front cross member, bolted it up, installed the spacers for where the torsion bars use to be, installed the non torsion bar drop brackets, re-installed the lower control arm, installed the skid plates, and the cross member support tube.

    Did all that tonight.

    Edit:
    Also, I have new leaf springs at the shop right now, ready for pick up tomorrow. Going to install my add a leafs and then put them on my truck to give the rear a better ride. All i need to do now is hook up the front axles with the spacers, install front and rear shocks, install the add a leafs and then install the leaf springs, put the knuckles back on, hook up all the ball joints and brake lines. Those aren't in order just remembering stuff when i think of it.

    Stupid torsion bars! I don't know how to load them without almost ripping out my ball joints... I'm 98% done, just need to load my torsion bars and put my new leaf springs in. Then i'm all done. Tomorrow will be my last day, it better be.... I just want to drive my truck now.

    I do not know how i am going to load my torsion bars without pushing my control arms into the ground.and ripping out my ball joints. Anyone have any idea's? I put so much pressure on them and yet there still wasn't room. When i put the torsion keys in, they're either going to hit the top of the cross member, or it's just below the cross member, and i can't put enough tension on it to bring it up to where it was, should i put my tires on first then load it? i don't know how I'm going to do it.
