    It's done!!!!![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I had allready removed the 3 nuts holding the steering arm to the nuckle yesterday. I sprayed heavily last night. On my way home from work I stopped by the fine people at CI-Service and asked theire mechanic if I could borrow a tie-rod disconnector thingy. Which offcource they lent me:

    Heres a photo halfway through. Getting the springs to line upp. No problem just a lot of pulling and tugging.

    Think it will still fit in the garage?

    That must have been sitting in the ice and snow :) Looks good. What lift did you go with?

    Thanks guys.
    It was a Pro comp 4" kit. Blocks rear springs front. I allready have a 3" bodylift so I'm upp there allright. Tomorow I pick upp my 35 12,5 Mud's. I'l post a final picture then. Just took it for a test-drive and no vibrations(phuew !!) It's alot stiffer and bouncier but I like it. The old shocks where so far gone they did nothing usefull. With the fresh shocks on I really feel a improvment in cornering and especially making long highspeed turns, where with the old shocks the truck would leeeen alot.

    WAY TO GO, ESPEN. LOOKING GREAT!!!! Please mail me some pictures when you get those 35" muds bolted on.
    You have to get some advice from the lokal carpenter,on a lift-kit for the garage as well.
    Now you really made me sorry I sold my Blazer, your K5 looks like my old one....-sniff.sniff.....sorry about the tears.....
    I'll try to fit 38,5" on my vehicle before you get those 35"........gonna stay one step ahead..... :-) :-) :-)

    Looking good. Think you need a taller garage though.
