Prior to beginning the installation, OPEN the Boxes and CHECK the Included Components Compared to the Parts Breakdown. Check all parts and hardware in the box with the parts list below. Be sure you have all needed parts and know where they install.
IF you find a packaging error, contact SUPERLIFT directly. Do not contact the dealer where the system was originally purchased. You will need the control number from each box when calling; this number is located at the bottom of the part number label and to the right of the bar code. •
The part number is stamped into each part or printed on an adhesive label. Identify each part and place the appropriate mounting hardware with it.
Installation requires a professional mechanic. The overall vehicle must be in excellent working condition; repair or replace all worn parts.
Read instructions several times before starting. Be sure you have all needed parts and know where they install. Read each step completely as you go.
• Front end alignment is necessary.
• Do not fabricate any components to gain additional suspension height.
• Prior to attaching components, be sure all mating surfaces are free of grit, grease, excessive undercoating, etc.
• A factory service manual should be on hand for reference.
Save all factory components and hardware for reuse, unless noted.

20. Reinstall the strut cover using the factory hardware.
21. Reclip the windshield wiper cover.
22. Secure the lower mount using the factory hardware. [21mm]
23. Reattach the brake hose to the bracket using the factory hardware. [8mm]

IMPORTANT PRODUCT USE AND SAFETY INFORMATION / WARNINGS
As a general rule, the taller a vehicle is, the easier it will roll over. Offset, as much as possible, what is lost in rollover resistance by increasing tire track width. In other words, go “wide” as you go “tall”; always use as wide a tire and wheel combination as feasible to enhance vehicle stability. We strongly recommend,
because of rollover possibility, that the vehicle be equipped with a functional roll bar and cage system. Seat belts and shoulder harnesses should be worn at all times. Avoid situations where a side rollover may occur. Generally, braking performance and capabilities are decreased when significantly larger / heavier tires and wheels are used. Take this into consideration while driving. Also, changing axle gear ratios or using tires that are taller or shorter than factory height will cause an erroneous speedometer reading. On vehicles equipped with an electronic speedometer, the speed signal impacts other important functions as well. Speedometer recalibration for both mechanical and electronic types is highly recommended.
Do not add, alter, or fabricate any factory or aftermarket parts to increase vehicle height over the intended height of the SUPERLIFT® product purchased. Mixing component brands is not recommended.
