Cool. You get that done in just one day? I put a 6" Skyjacker kit on my F-150 by myself, and it took several days. Of course the weather didn't help me much either :rolleyes:

How easy was it to take off the pitman arm? Mine took several hours with a puller, and I had to cut if off the tie rod.

9 hours and it was the ONLY nice weather day we've had lately...82 degrees!!
I used a pitman puller and then applied a bit of heat from a torch...BAM it popped off fast...the only rough part was airchieseling the rivets...LOL

We also replaced teh front disc pads AND both motor mounts(torn) while we were working on it...

we drained and replaced ALL of the brake fluid, too...

He drove it 55 miles back home and said it was fine except for a slight "funny feel" in the steering, but a trip to the front alignment shop on Monday took care of that...

If you don't want to scratch build, this kit is a good deal...not sure what he paid for it, but it came with everything needed...shocks, bolts, brakelines, and some decent instructions...LOL
