fiveeightandten, thanks for the awesome explanation. Also in for pics. Good idea about jacking up the RTA. Couple of questions:

Maybe its self-explanatory (haven't received the parts in my hands yet) but when I install the limiters, does the beveled edge FACE the rtab? (flat side out?)

Last time I did this, it was on a lift. This time I'll be doing it on the ground with jackstands. I'm guessing it's easier if I lift the entire rear end with the wheels off? (so the swaybar doesn't load one side up, making it impossible to drop the trailing arm?)

I know you've done this a few times, so I appreciate your feedback!
