No problem! The only thing I missed after reviewing is the rear shock lower mount nut. I couldn't find a PN but I didn't really look all that hard...

The heavy duty mount isn't worth it IMO. I run OEM mounts with reinforcement plates and have no problems on MN roads.

What do you think a fair price to pay to have the stuff installed?

I know I'll have to get it all realigned when I am done...
It's a PITA no matter what you do. The lift will obviously be easier but it's not impossible to do it with jack stands.
