nooooo you hold medium pressure on the brakes and then give it gas, release the brakes some if necessary. its all about finding the balance.

Hey love mud, it is very possible, do you have air tools? It will make your life soooooooo much easier. As far as tips give yourself plenty of time, and when you get frstrated walk away for a bit. You can do it. Ill give you my number if you want and you can call me with questions. Oh and I suggest you get a friend to help, it will make it way easier.

What's the advantage of a body lift over lift blocks and spindles? Wouldn't blocks and spindles be a hell of a lot easier (ie: not having to take literally your whole truck apart)

Its cheaper and being a 4x4 its not the same. Have to spend serious money for a lift kit on the rangers with torsion bars.

I have torsion bars on my truck (03 edge) and I spent 400 on fabtech spindles. I see em for sale all the time for this price.

even though both are torsion bars, 4x4s dont have spindles so the lifts are more expensive
