    I've been working on my lift a couple hours a day for the last week and a half...by myself with no air tools and no torch/welder. I've had so many problems I can't even begin to remember them all. The front springs had too big a bolt on the bottom so I had to spend 2 hours filing them down so it would fit in the axle. The bolts stuck out too far on the top, so I had to take time and trim them down. I'm finally ready to actually mount the springs to the axle and then I figure out that 4-Wheel Parts Wholestealers sent me the wrong sized U-bolts. They are exactly half an inch too wide. They won't fit through the holes and are way too big around the axle tubes. And since I bought the lift over a year ago, I probably won't be able to get my money back. Working on a very rusty, 27 year old truck is bad enough, but other people making mistakes just pisses me off so bad. Superlift tech support is a bunch of hick retards and you have to be on hold for about 15 minutes before they take your call. And 4-Wheel Parts Wholestealers operators are always rude...and the place is usually overpriced. Why can't every place be as cool as ORD???

    Been there, done that. Was different companies tho'.

    I feel your pain.

    Mud is just thick water, or is it that water is just thin mud?
