Re: How hard?

it depends on the height. I just installed a 2" Performance Accessories body lift on my '93 suburban. I got the whole thing done in less than 5 hrs with the help of a friend. The hardest part was getting the old body bolts off in one piece. Just make sure you have a breaker bar or a piece of pipe on hand. The 3" kit looked like it had some cutting and welding involved, which my 2" kit didnt need, so it was a snap. Just make sure you loosen 'em all up, and do one side at a time so all the holes line up. As you're jacking it up check for any lines, cables, etc. If u need more specifics lemme know.

Re: How hard?

Man I have a TON of information about my body lift in posts from back in...september. i'd go read up on those and see if they help any. But some words of wisdom, start spraying all your body mounts with pb blaster everday, twice a day, three times a day just dont get it in your eyes, its nooo good haha
