New tools and parts all fit nicely and leave me a bit of cash leftover. I was able to get 4 days of access to my friend's heated garage so whoooo on that! He lives a long way from me but that's what Uber is for right?

This is where I'm at now:

Bilstein 6112/5160 lift
Sway Bar relocate
Diff drop
ARB Rear spring, 1.5" lift standard load
Either SPC or JBA UCAs (SPC is a Colorado company so that's a big plus for me, but JBA would save me $160)
New SPC cam bolts
NAPA New axles (will have my OEMs rebuilt by CVJ)

Any specific tools I should get to make this job easier? Have ratcheting wrenches on the list as well as a cordless impact driver. Any odd socket sizes I'll need? Specialty tools?

Was advised that unless I am having problems from the hubs to just leave them be.

Am thinking about going ahead and getting some new rear links to throw on. Haven't decided yet. SPC makes a nice set for about $280 though.

I can get all this locally for around $2600, $2800 with tax. $100 for an alignment, $200 for the transmission. That leaves me money leftover for any surprise problems and beer and pizza and weed.

After I lift this, how far is safe to drive to get the alignment done?

Hopefully it doesn't take 4 days to get all this installed.
At least you have money for weed and pizza, that's what makes the world go round lol.

Bilstein top nut is 18mm. Look up the axle popper on Amazon, makes pulling axles out a breeze, not too expensive. A decent jack, 2 ton or better, BIG jack stands, probably a 4x4 block of wood for the jack. I say BIG stands, because you are lifting, so you need to go to max height so you can still get rims back on when you're done.

There is a thread on this forum for custom extended rear links, uses an energy suspension link and bushing kit from the auto parts store and some hardware from home Depot, super cheap but worth it.

You should try to get an alignment done immediately after you are done, tires will wear badly and handling will be an issue otherwise.
