3.To install the Budget Boost setup, each of the vehicle's axle housings need to be lowered from the chassis while the frame rails remain in a stationary position, supported by jack stands. We started with the front of the vehicle. We found the easiest way achieve this was by placing two individual floor jacks under the front axle housing. With the front tires removed, we took off each of the front sway bar end links. Next, each of the lower front shock mounts were removed. This allowed the front axle to be free enough to droop out an additional four inches, releasing pressure on the front coil springs. Each coil spring was removed to allow access to the bump stop mounts.
