I did not do that. Perhaps thats why it was so hard. What video did you see that in? Its definitely helpful to watch multiple like install videos as none of them seem to show you quiet all the little things you need to know. But yea if I can give little tips like that in a threat like this... perhaps it will make it that much easier for the next guy. I know reading these forums i have gotten tons of info that has made things easier for me with other things Jeep related!I agree that the front bump stop is pretty tricky, were you able to remove the brake line bracket from the back of the axel? The extreme terrain video do not show this but some other videos showed this trick and made it much easier to access that nut underneath.
