Im 17 and im perfectly capable of installing a lift CRANKYPISTOL. Its very easy, as long as you have some pneumatics, wrenches, and a nice saw zall. The independent suspension in our front ends is such an easy thing to learn. the cv axles pop right out, the knuckle comes of with a few taps of a hammer, the sway bar links come off with a nut, and the coilovers come out without a compressor. The hardest part of the install is dropping the differential. The only annoying part on the 09-12 is the coil spring rear, but its still very easy! I work on boats and new nothing about suspension until i got my truck and did research. Im sure you can do it!

Nice, thanks. I was a diesel mechanic for 11 years. Now I manage a goodyear store. I just wandered on the experience level to give me a time estimate.

However, after seeing the warranty voiding comments, I'll just keep my leveling kit for now.
