The rear went pretty smooth. Only real issue I ran into was needing to order the factory front hanger bolt and nut, along with a pinion shim and longer centering pin so the shim could be bolted to the pack. Couple notes, the conversion hanger came with a 3/4” hole drilled for the hanger. The factory 08 bolt is 20mm. So be prepared to enlarge the hanger bolt hole slightly. I bought a metric step bit that goes up to 20mm from amazon to do this. Also, the leaf spring centering pin is 7/16” fine thread, I simply took a 7/16” fine thread grade 8 bolt the correct length and rounded the edges to make the pin head. Worked perfect.

No doubt, 170 bucks on sale. I bought two and couldn’t have completed this work without them.

Drivers side bucket and trac bar bracket installed. This was a little tricky because the install thread I used from a different forum said their was an existing hole on the frame that would align the rest of the bracket. My frame didn’t have this hole so I had to figure out how to mount the trac bar bracket, in the end it turned out relatively easy.

Sweet refresh, in for updates. Is a difficult job to measure out coil buckets and the attachments for the link arms? Or is it just use existing holes or a simple tape measure job.

Man the majority of the job is bolt on. Every brack has some type of existing holes to align everything. Below is a link to a thread I followed, along with pictures he took and labeled well.
