Re: Lift install??

I have done 4 other vehicle lifts in my time including helping on a custome fab as my experience.. I did my Rancho lift and its virtualy the same as the TM.. Plan on at LEAST 3 days if you have a full car lift.. More if no lift.. Plan on every single one of your friends hating you.. Plan on going broke buying said friends beer and pizza.. Plan on loosing at least 3 wrenches because of being thrown.. You will be glad when your done and got to save that $500 having the shop do it as you drive yourself in your friends car to get your finger looked at because of the biggest nuckle-buster in your life.. Yea you can do it.. Its easy[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img].. Dont even think about doing it if you dont have a compressor and air tools.. You will need a oxy-welder or a cutter.. Big one is the torsion bar tool that unloads the preload on the t-bars.. Very dangerous if not done properly.. Have fun..[img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
