You did disconnect the sway bar right? My 1.5" leveled Bilsteins slipped in with PLENTY of space to spare...

I know what you mean though, the tight area makes the whole process very interesting.

Yup. Did the swaybar. They amounted to about 2.25" of lift so we had to wedge them in there. Needed about a half an inch of clearance.

Did you use a bottle or scissor jack? When I did my leveling kit I used a scissor jack inbetween the control arm and frame for more clearance. Worked great.

Didn't use any jacks between the frame and control arm. Just stuck a pry bar in there and pried down on the top of the strut tower to wedge it in there. Once we knew what we were doing it was easy. The first half of the project is always the longest.
