For being the first time wasn't too bad at all. Hardest part was getting it aligned actually. Running some used 31s ats for now I grabbed off Craigslist. Clears the tires just fine. Rides pretty smooth on the road.

Nice work... What type of paint did you use in coating those coils?

Always a great feeling on the first one. In my case it became a sickness that hasnt stopped, My Ranger, My Explorer, My Samurai, the wifes JEEP, etc... Nice work. If you have issues running the blocks in the rear (I did, axle wrap)get the James Duff Traction bars. Not the big ones, but the smaller set that bolts to the front spring hanger and the top of the rear axle. they flex well and have never let me down even with the V-8 I have in mine.

You can kinda see them in this pic. The bar above the rear spring. I eventually went with the SkyJacker 4" rear springs, but kept the bars.
