Re: Lifting This Weekend. Last Minute ???

You will want 2 sets of jack stands. one for the frame and one for the axle.

Rubicon Express lift just had me grease whith plain ole' chassis grease...same stuff you would use on the rest of the Jeep.

Booms will help in the rear...not so much in the front...better clearance up front...you can change out shackles pretty easy...It is always easier to do it once...but this time wont be so bad.

Good socket set with 9/16" to 7/8" sockets, breaker bar, and impact wrench will do most everything you need...

Hit EVERY BOLT whith PB Blaster tonight then do it again before breakfast....then enjoy yourselft...shouldn't take more than a day. But if it does...don't worry about it...take it slow and get it right.

You can see some pics of my R/E install here .
