    :rofl::sign0144:First let me say hello to everyone. I joined to get some much needed advice on installing a Fabtech 7' suspension lift on my 01 2WD extended silverado. I am pretty handy with tools and have a fair knowledge about what needs to happen but I am thinking about installing the kit myself in my driveway. What do you guys think?

    Welcome to the club!

    Well I know I wouldn't do it by myself, but then again if something can go wrong it will go wrong at my house. We have a 4 post car lift at our house, and I still wouldn't try it even with that added luxury. If you don't have a lift I would say hell no, but then again a guy on this site just did a lift in his barn with no lift and he did alright with a helper. It depends on your skill level. :great:

    I would say you can do it, i would do it, but you just gotta have something that can lift the front 7 inches and gotta be able to tear apart quick and re assemble quick cuz its not as hard as 4wd but it will take a little work on the front how much you get that for anyways? i would do it in your garage if i was you but i would do it myself if i was in your position just in a garage cuz it mite take a bit unless your ready to work staight through it

    I did my kit myself, in a tiny shop with just 20 ton floor jacks. I would say go for it if you are wanting to save money, it should be easier with yours as it's 2wd, and you don't have to line up the front differential, and drop it.

    shouldnt be too hard just have to take off the lower control arms, install the bracket then bolt them back on then prob put the blocks in the back and a few other minor details, i would say go for it just make sure you get an alignment afterwards
