I hope with the level kit installed, that my top bolt has been protected from the stuff I've been wheeling from..
YES!! You will gain almost 4-6 inches of travel on the lower control arm. This will make it so much easier to install/remove the strut. I did not use the strut compressor ON THE TRUCK. I could remove it and install it just fine with the caliper and rotor taken off.I have a manual on dvd says to remove the caliper and rotor to replace the struts. I couldn't tell by your pic. Is that needed. If so I will wait till new rotors show up and do the brakes at the same time. Also what bare the best places for stands and blocks for support during the job. Thanks
