    Really pretty easy on the front and rear, just unbolt u-bolts, lower axle, remove spring pack pin and install zero rate with new longer spring pack pin.

    Really pretty easy my eye /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I put my 2nd gen. 0 rates in the rear last night in my drive way. Drop light, jack stands, hand tools. A little over 4 hours start to finnish. My rewards are 1.5 in longer wheelbase, back, hands, forearms & back and legs are toast /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif I WILL be getting air tools /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif But wrenching in the driveway is part of the fun... So cal weather is great, started at about 6:00 pm- finnished at about 10:00 pm-Shorts & t-shirt /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
