Double or triple the install time indicated in your instructions when working on the driveway. Driveway time is always more than shop time. I finished mine last summer and the problem was drilling out the rivets for the TTB drop down brackets, not the extended radius arm brackets. Well good luck and let me know if you need help

None of my factory parts are riveted on for what ever reason all my stock kit is bolted.im hoping to unbolt and rebolt the new kit on with no hassle.I bought the kit used from a local guy but he didnt have hardware cause he used it on a new kit Hopefully all my bolts will work without buying a hardware kit.Hours wise how lng you think? Thanks:goodfinge

Install time is hard to gauge with out looking at the project. When working on older vehicles something will always go wrong. I would buy new hardware to be on the safe side, $20 in bolts & nuts are worth the peace in mind. Use locktite when bolting down. That is odd your TTB brackets are bolted. Mine were riveted on the driver's side and bolted on the passenger side. I'd look again and make sure. My instructions may have said 8 hrs for shop time so 16 in driveway time would be about right. That is if nothing goes wrong.

If you have people helping you who have done it and know the shorcuts you can do it even faster. :)

What's better for rear lift, shackle flip or leaf springs, or add-a-leaf??

I like my flip, much better than blocks, the ones I had really messed up my springs, plus they can fall off, I have heard stories. If you have the money I would suggest getting some lift springs for the rear. 1/4 of the work plus I heard they give you a smoother ride.

the best way is to get a full rear leaf pack.. If you can't save up the money for the rear leaf packs I would do a shackle flip over blocks.. Nothing worse then having a block getting thrown out on the road..

AAl's work, but they only give you about 1.5" of lift..

full leaf packs are the way to go.
