First take the weightoff the front end and turn the tortion bars up I went 10 turns. Now pay attention not to go to far. Turn them up a few then set it down. Now what u should watch is your down travel bump stops. When under full weight I have 3/4 inch gap. If u top them out the ride will be rough and could risk braking a bar. For the back get a helper spring. Separate the spring pack from the axle. Take the overload spring off and flip it upside down cause they are usually bent. Then put the helper between the overload and spring pack. You will need a longer spring center bolt and vise grips to compress the pack. The original bolt worked fine for me. I gained 2 1/2 in in the front and 3 1/2 in the back Plus with being able to fit 32x11.50x 15. Mud tires it is a full 5 inches taller. Hope this helps. P.s. this should only take 1 to 2 hrs with basic tools. Check mine out one hear
