The leaf spring was detached from the lower control arms and the cross member.
Now the leaf spring was able to be removed by sliding out of the cross member.
Everything was now bolted back together in the rear and we were ready to go. With the KW’s we were able to set the ride height about an inch lower.
With the HLS system on the car was a bit higher than stock ride height.
With the car fully lowered, it was almost tucking the front tires, pretty cool! The HLS in our case raised the car by about 1.2 inches.
