SWLA,


I had to use a small piece of 2x5 to compress my front Bilsteins. Once it was compressed I put the top in first and had the bottom bolt ready to slide in when it reached the bottom mount point (you have to be quick). If you turn your wheels so the truck would be turning to the side your working on, it's much easier to get at.


The backs set is very easy, no problems. Just make sure you torque them down heavy as "TheChevyHDMan" suggested.


I had installed a set of adjustable Rancho 9000's before the Bilsteins and I didn't have any problems compressing them. I didn't like the Rancho's at all. I felt the stock shocks were a better ride. You are going to love the Bilsteins. I should have installed them in the Dealer parking lot before I drove home.
