Guys,
Is there any special trick to putting the front Bilsteins on? I have already done the backs. Just unbolt crappy shocks and bolt new shocks on? Also, should I stay away from the impact wrench on the shocks? If not, what ft lbs?

Do a search. That's where I got my information from so that I'm ready when mine show up.

It's easier if you pull the tires, but people do it with the front tires on. I doubt you'll need the impact wrench for the job. Lower bolts are around 60 ft-lbs. IIRC, and the upper just gets tightened until the rubber bushing compresses.

Yeah, definitely easier if you remove the tires! Thanks for the help guys, got it done in about an hour for all four tires.
