    do one side at a time. jack one side up pull the wheel and pry off factory bump stop.put some lube on the timbren and push and work it in .its easy there is no drilling involved.

    It took me 15 minutes per side. Just bolt them into the same hole for the factory stop. On my '04 2500HD I had to remove the lower shock bolt. To reinstall, lower the jack slowly until you can get the bolt back in.

    There was a steel wedge that had to be placed in between to get the proper angle.

    If you have trouble PM me and I'll dig out my instructions.

    Just installed some on my 2000 1/2 ton a couple nights ago. Just crank the steering wheel all the way in one direction, jack up one side, pry out old bump stop, spray cup & Timbren with silicone, twist & push up to insert. Repeat for other side, very simple, took me 30 minutes tops. Here's a link to my before and after pics.
