I used info from pops thread and this is what i did to get mine done:
Three top bolts are 14mm:
From there, i think removed the sway bar at the end link connection and the bottom bolt:
I flat black spray painted the rotors using high temp paint.....hate looking at rusty hats...so i hand scuffed them down a bit, wiped them really good and then sprayed them.
The shock just came right out with little to no effort, lots of room and easy to do.
I had the entire front of the armada on jack stands and the rear chocked at the tires.
Was a easy job really. front took me about 30 minutes total to get them off. on the way to work that day i stopped by a local shop and they swapped the springs to the bilstein shocks for $30 bucks cash.
BIG HINT! - Make sure to take a silver sharpie or a paint marker with you and mark the bolt and spring perch orientation. this is crucial!
I marked mine and one side was 100 percent perfect but the other side was a hair off and took some persuasion.
next day installling them back on took at most an hour because before installing the bilstiens back on i changed out all the alignment bolts with the moog camber bolts.
to do that i put a jack under the lower control arm and simply supported the lower control arm minus the shock installed and took one bolt out at a time. very very easy.
oem bolts are 19mm nuts paired with 22mm head on the bolt side.
When reinstalling i put the head side of the moog bolts facing each other - i did this because alignment techs wont be having to push one way, then switch to the next bolt and push the other way. with the head of the bolt on the aft side of the lower arm on the fwd side, this helps a bit.
The entire front minus the driving to the shop time, took about 1.5 total. I think what really made everything very quick is a few things, 1. I have done this all before on my titan, and 2. i had all the tools i needed.
Long handle wrenchs - make the job easier.
breaker bars - have small one with ratcheting feature.
electric impact gun
impact extenstion - 6 inch
deep and short sockets.
PB blasted everything nut and bolt head location the night before.
Job went very very smooth up front.
Rear I slapped in a 1.5 inch prg lift spacer in the coil bucket under the factory spring, paired with airrite red airbags for towing. also painted rear hats on rotors too.
The rear install was easy as well minus my drivers side toe bolt issue at alignment shop, Discussed here - http://www.clubarmada.com/forums/showthread.php?t=49034
Hope this helps others as this thread helped me.
