I actually had to buy new stainless steel bolts from my local home improvement store since the OEM bolts limit how far you can tighten them. I also bought a new gasket and problem solved.

I also use the chasis frame rails to jack the car up if needed.

The fronts will require A LOT of work to make fit. The rear is doable with a fend roll and a slight pull. Camber and stretched tires will be your friend.

You shouldn't need camber arms at 2“ lowered, unless you're planning to run negative camber.

As for springs, i reco that you upgrade bc springs with swift springs. Stock spring rates are fine.
