I am taking the T in to get the lift put on today. Does anyone have any tips for an easy install. I was looking over the instructions which look outdated to me and it calls for some redrilling of some holes to make bigger and welding of the rear crossmember bracket which I thought the Procomp was all bolt on no modifying of the factory parts which is why I picked this kit. Also it says to use their sway bar adapter on the end links. Would I need to use these if I'm using the CST endlinks from PRG? Thanks, hopefully will all go smooth today.

From what I understand PC lift is the easiest of the 6". Shouldn't be a problem at all, and if I am not mistaken the drilling involves widening for the larger bumpstops.

If you have any questions just ask on here and someone will surely help out promptly

Thanks for the quick reply.From waht I skimmed over quickly I believe you are rt on that one but the welding through me off on the rear cross member and it also calls for drilling in lower rear control arm.

There was no welding on mine that I know of.

1. Make sure you like your front ride height before getting the alignment. Make your coilover adjustments.
2. Take an extra pair of wheels for your front alignment if you have some. 4wheelparts nicked all four of my wheels with their alignment wheel-mount.
3. Tell them ahead of time that you want your parts back. If not who knows where your nuts and bolts will end up. They lost the bolts for my PRG leveling spacer.
4. Inspect every wheel and body panel for nicks and scratches before and after like a rental car walk around. I got a scratch on my front bumper and didnt notice it until I got home. Luckily the shop fixed it, but I think they were waiting for me to catch it.

Thats all I can think of right now.

Thanks for the tips especially about adjusting the coils before the alignment. I only have the 3" in the rear so hopefully I can get the frt to level with the back. Discount actually nicked my new rims taking it off the machine that balances them. Its on the inside but still bothers me. I actually made a list this morning listing everything I expected back from boxes to instructions....lol

no the cst endlinks completely replace the procomp ones and will save an hour install time as well.

**UPDATE**

ok checked in on it and minor things came up so maybe you guys can help:
1. is there a specific way or wrong way to mount the radflo's in the bucket?
2. the washer / spacer for the factory skid plate to fit was missing and seems like there is a 2" gap between the frt skid plate and where it bolts and thats hitting the bumper....any ideas?
3. no screw small enough to fit in the spindle to secure the bracket for the brake line.
other than that heres a peek.....

2. There wasnt a spacer on my other titan for the skid plate, it had the same heavy duty pita one too. Did they mount it in the correct spot?
3. Maybe drill the bracket out to fit a larger hole?

The truck looks sick. Those radflo's, tires, and wheels......"idhitit2:

I'm not running Radflos so no input there. On #2 there should of been 4 rather thick load washers gold in color that came with the kit. You use 1 for each stock skid plate mouting bolt. You also need to trim the bottom rear corner where it mounts to the front diff drop bracket. #3 there should of been 2 small silver allen head bolts that you use to attach the stock brake line/abs sensor. You have to flaten the stock bracket, its really easy. The Pro Comp instructions were pretty good, with decent illustration pics. It took me and a buddy about 5 hours to install the stage II kit with the Pro Comp traction bars. I would say what helped was having a lift to use (installed at my work place), and reading over the instructions a couple times to familarize myself. Post pics when shes done.

ok here it is.....

lift finished 001.JPG

lift finished 011.JPG

lift finished 008.JPG

lift finished 015.JPG

the only issue is some serious creeking and squeaking frt and back the whole time im rolling. the mechanic said sounded like shocks. when you bounce on it frt or back you can hear it bad and i laid under it and puched the tail end up and you could see the shock body go up and stay and same when I pulled it down it would hold that position. He sprayed it with some wd but nothing....any ideas?
