ok, just to give you an idea.....

for the rear, you will need to:
1) unbolt and move the exhaust mounting bracket
2) remove the tailpipe behind the muffler
3) the leafs do need to come out

for the front, you can keep your sway bar. :thumbup:

Hope this helps....
anymore questions, let me know :D

hmmmm

Since I have been informed I'm installing one of them....by sonomagirl.......

I will touch on the front. The sway bars can be kept but if u want good side to side, they limit that a lot. Front kits are easy to install and more or less just drop right in, some eyebrowing to the frame is needed though.

Ummmm, thats all for now, I'm really tired, hehe

Rear Install.....

You have to remove the stock sway bar. Notch the bed, the frame, and the gas tank cross member....... The only welding that is required is the minor welding on the axle brackets. Everything else is a complete bolt in... The front and rear comes complete with a full set of color instruction manuals. The installation is easy!!!!

As far as the front... You do have to "eyebrow" the frame to clear the 2B6-ext air spring and install the relocation bracket for the brake line. You will also need to notch the inner fenderwell so you don't have any shock rubbing issues... Once again it comes with EVERYTHING you need....

As far as removing the swaybar....That is up to you. If this is something that you are planning on driving everyday and you like to drive the truck hard the swaybar is going to make a big difference in cornering. If this is just something you want to clown with at the shows then take the sway bar out and don't run shocks of coarse you will just have to trailer it everywhere.....

One option you might want to think about is sway bar disconnects the offroad guys use these all the time....

Hope this helps...
Later... Aaron
