Well I have hit a standing point, I compressed the front springs as much as I can crank on them and they are not compressed enough to go in. I think I ma going to try to figure out how to put it bck together, I am starting to question what gores where and take it somewhere or just get it towed somewhere. I have done lifts on trucks and xterras and they never take this long or involve taking so much stuff off to get new parts on. I never found the video if the install without a spring compressor. I guess I really messed up.

If I had to do it again next time, I would have a shop compress the springs onto the shocks. The spacing between the new coils were so small, It was such a pain to remove the spring compressor from the coils.

Driver sides donr so I am 3/4 of the way there. I have the passengers side opened up but the UCA isn't wanting to play nice. I will say , doing it the way the video shows for the no spring compressor was a world easier, I have no clue what everyone is taling about when they say compress the spring on the strut, this kit isnt a coilover so I guess its different.

Well it took almost 3 days pretty much 2 but I did it 1 armed and I think I torques everything down to the best of my ability. When I get an alignment will they re torque everything down they undo?

Thats the video I used. and the front was a ton easier than the rear. I started the rear on friday and it was done friday nnight, the front I started the drivers side around 3-4 and was done by 10 and I started the passenger side close to noon and was done by 5.

Glad to see you figured it all out. Did you take measurements before and after ?

How much lift was your kit ?

It's the OME 3 inch lift with the heavy springs front and rear so once I get the rear bumper on it should come down a bit
The rear was
D- 36 1/4 41 something
P - 36 1/2 41 something

Front I had them written down somewhere I will measure when I get home tomorrow It got dark and I am beat.
D -
P -

Can't imagine doing it with one arm, but glad you got it worked out. When you get a minute, can you go back and answer your own question from post #1 of this thread. It's sure to help others and I would bet you have a wealth of knowledge to share.truck looks good.

I don't run the diff drop, but recall it was a fairly simple process. I think wander lost covered it in their lift vid.

KDSS does make it more complicated but insignificantly I'd say. I didn't need to disconnect the front bar at all. Jacking up one side would open (barely) enough room to fit the coilover in.
I did disconnect the rear though but it was very easy to put it back.
