Hello everyone,

I have ordered the PRG 3.5" kit with new Bilsteins from PRG and was wondering if anyone had some tips and a tool list so I can prepare myself when the parts arrive this coming week. Kit comes with new upper control arms, bumpstops, camber bolts, new front and rear spacers, shocks, extended swaybar end links and new rear ubolts. Cant wait to do the install!!

Thank you in advance,

Cody

Electric Impact wrench, 22mm, 21mm, 19mm, 18mm, 17 mm, 15mm, 8mm sockets and wrenches, socket exensions, universal joint, needle nose pliers, Strut spring compressors, screwdrivers, crow bar PB blaster, might be some others that I can't think of

Thank you for the tool list! Much appreciated!!

I've been spraying down the bolts since yesterday with PB Blaster! LOL!

U joint and socket extensions??

ratcheting wrenches make upper control arm bolts easy (stack another wrench on the 1st one for the extra leverage). Take your time, its a lot of parts but its gonna look amazing and ride fantastic when you're done.

Don't let the camber bolts intimidate you. Pick up some good quality sawzall blades incase your original camber bolts are seized.

I used my electric impact, a u joint and an extension to take my UCA bolts out the second time. The first time I used a crescent wrench and it was a pain in the a55. Also the u joint and extension makes it easier to take off the spindle bolt, again using the electric impact. Pulling out the wheel well lines makes it easier to access the UCA bolts too.

ah i see. I usually just stick with my long handle metric gear wrenches for the entire front end. Impact for removing the wheels. The noise of the impact bugs me. lol


I also live in Az where theres no such thing as rust like you guys deal with.

We let bare metal rust on purpose just to make it look cool actually. lol

When did you place your order?
Hopefully you can wait - b/c I had to cancel my PRG order (5100's) after waiting 1 month and several emails, phone calls, facebook posts, etc with no contact from PRG...
I see, well i hope you get everything sorted out. I ordered my stuff last week and he actually called me the next day to confirm the year of the truck and some other things. The shocks came from Ohio and got here yesterday and the other items should be here tomorrow. I believe he is a one man shop and does everything himself so maybe it is hit or miss.

Thank you for the help, the rear doesn't worry me at all, it's just the front will all of the pieces. I can't wait to see the difference compared to the prg mini lift that i have on now and then once i get new tires in a month or so here, should look pretty sweet!

Anyone know if this lift is compatible with 2017 Titan 2WD (Non XD)?? Having trouble finding lifts for my truck other than leveling kits.

this is basically a leveling kit, not a lift kit. Rough Country does make a lift kit for second gen Titans

Do you know if this would be compatible with my truck though? And yeah I have looking into RCX lifts for my truck but they are supposedly only compatible with the 4x4's and XD's. I messaged RCX and they said they do not have anything compatible for the 2017 2WD trucks right now other than the 2" leveling kit.

Oh wow! Yeah I'm crossing my fingers! Haha!

The Ruff country arms arrived yesterday and look good. It does say in the instructions to grind the inner tabs of the control arm pockets? Do I need to do this?

Yes. Or else the tabs will destroy the rubber bushings.

Just a quick update, passenger side is just about done but I am having trouble getting the rear nut off of the upper control arm. There is not very much space to get a breaker bar and socket on due to the steering column that comes down. Anyone have any suggestions?

Put the wrench on it (the closed end) and then stack another wrench on the end of the open end. Takes some effort for sure, but this is how I do it every time, haven't busted a knuckle yet. Slow gradual increase in pressure keeps you from slipping off the wrench or nut. Throw a wrench on the bolt but don't worry about it unless you can actually see it move. that nut might break loose without needing to hold the bolt in place.


DO NOT ROUND THAT NUT lol.
