Not sure if you already got this sucker installed already, but the job doesn't require special tools (Unless you rent the compressers vs having a shop do it). It's your basic handtools. IIRC, 19MM was the biggest size that you need. And be sure to have a grease gun handy if you are swapping UCA's.

I have a buddy that is going to assist, just have to find time now. He has a compressor, so shouldnt b too bad. Plus I'm only doing 2" blocks under the front to level it. The throw some spacers on and add 33's. Have to wait to wear out factory tires first, shouldn't take long. Thanks for the reply though.

You don't need a spring compressor to install a leveling kit. However an air compressor and air tools makes the job a lot easier.

Ditto this question. If it's an air compressor to run air wrenches, fine. But if it's a spring compressor, you're doing it wrong. :lol:

I spent this past sunday putting on the PRG 1.5" kit. Installing the leveling kit was easy however since my '05 had the original struts I decided to swap those out. Had to rent the strut compressor from the parts store. I have to say that my truck looks much better than it did before. Well worth the work.

To answer your question, no special tools required. Now I just need some advice on strengthening the rear end :)

For some reason I thought you were also swapping out the suspension as well.

Plan on putting it in on friday. Wish me luck. Any problems with just adding a 2" leveling kit and not upgrading anything else?

Already purchased 2" :( I guess i will install it and give it a run. If i put a .5" block in the back, would that help? or does anybody want to trade a 1.5" for 2"? I was told you could do 2" on 4x4 & 3" on 2WD without having to do anything but add spacers. Is this incorrect?

Rear block won't help. for the older model Titans 2" for 4x4 and 2.5" for the 2wd, but for newer models, 08+, it's 1.5" for 4x4, and 2" for 2wd. You might be able to grind away enough of the coil bucket lip to clear ... look for the mark from the UCA, grind a U with a Dremel tool etc. spray paint, drive, look for new mark, repeat.
