We were able to get the SL done in about 7 hours, minus the torsion bars, which are rusted in place, the anchor bolts are absolutley shot. Im going to have the local shop go at them wed. and then align. The X looks like a monster right now with a lifted rear and stock height in the front.

Best advice was the ball joint seperator (Thanks M3C!!!), which i found last second at harbor frieght. Took about 5 mins to remove both.

We had to make some modifications to the rear brake lines. The fitting was rusted and wasnt moving. So we cut the lines and made a new connection.

I drove home saturday night without any issues and plan to re torque this weekend after riding around a bit.

Thank you everybody for your input and have a great Christmas!!!!

When you do the body lift make sure to release the heater hoses from the clamp at the firewall. Don't and you take a big chance of breaking off the heater core nipples the hoses clamp on and create another job of putting in a new heater core. Did my body lift this summer and it was pretty straight forward. You had mentioned putting on 33's and I don't think without a body lift you could fit those. I put BFG mud terrain 33/10.5/15 on stock steel rims and they worked out great with just minor plastic trimming. I'm running full SLR upper control arms and steering and front diff drop.
