been a few years since i installed one. i wasnt even gonna do it but i felt the need for a few minutes and then it was to late to stop myself.

yep

You can't have too much PB balster & you can't start spraying th eboltds too early. It's tedious but not that hard minor adjustments are require but I didn't have ave great issues. I did mine to ahieve lift & keep a low center of Gravity. Well more than total lift. I know it's not everyones cup of tea but I like it better than total lift. one of th ebest results/ side effect was more engine access. Good luck guys It's teedious & wou'll be happe you bough tnew bushing. I used an electric impact on mine to assist with losening th ebolts with great results. pusshing as hard as you can with a wrench is nt good, the impact havvers the bolts loose. It worked on mine. Take you time work the bolts. Replacing the nut plates are not fun.

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

I have found with our captive nuts for the body mounts that in addition to very frequent spraying with PB that it helps to tighten them just a little.
tighten...loosen...tighten...loosen
Just enough to break the rust bond and get the penetrating oil soaked into all the threads.

Yep

I use my electric impact because it is not as strong as my pneumatic one either could work I suppose. I just want the impacrt function not the highest power for this. I suppose there is no wrong way on this.

I've had a kit here for a year but I know I have some loose nuts and just don't want to cut the holes. It would be great to see some picts from you to inspire me.
