Re: Pro Comp 4\'
I've installed almost every brand out there and the ProComp kits are a good quality kit.
The key to any lift kit installation is having the right tools to do the job. Air tools make it so much easier. Plan ahead before you start your installation. Get a can of P-B Blaster penetrating oil and spray every bolt you will have to loosen; daily, for about a week before you begin. That one step will save a lot of time and scraped knuckels.
As for the pitman arm delima; I had the same experience. Then I had an old time mechanic tell me the trick to it. You Don't use the puller to pull the pitman arm off the steering shaft. Use the puller to put it under tension and the tap on the side of the pitman arm (not the steering shaft) with a hammer then retighten the puller, tap again, repeat, etc. It will drop off without a lot of effort that way. By the way the nut on the steering shaft is a 1-5/16" if I remember correctly so make sure you have the correct size handy.
Some of the bolts are also large TORX bolts, something like T45 or T50. Always use the fasteners that come with the kit and don't be afraid to call the manufacturers tech number if you have questions before you start. They might have a tip that will save you some time on their kit.
I agree with munneypit about buying quality tools but I found out a long time ago you can get quality tools for a lot less than "CRAPSMAN" tools. I've had better luck with the tools you buy from the larger auto parts stores.
