I prefer two bottle jacks instead of the floor jack and stands, as the bottle jacks give finer adjustments.

Use a sharp drill bit.

I did the install with a buddy of mine this past Saturday.

The install went as slick as a greased BB out of a dog's ass.

The package was short a few washers and nuts, but everything else was so great I didn't mind the trip to the hardware store.

Thanks, John and Ho. And a Laurel and Hearty handshake to the folks at Slickrock.

I am very pleased.
