Default Installing a 2" Budget Boost on a '02 WJ
Called up a buddy and was able to do this in about 2.5 hours. Most of the time was spent trying to figure out how to jack the jeep safely up. It didn't want to stay level. Here are the pictures.

Front first:
Remove the tire


Disconnet the lower sway bar link


Remove the shock, first the bottom bolts, then the top



Spring compressors are a big help. This will allow you to get the spacer in


Once you have enough room, slide the spacer on top of the spring



Install the new shock


Reattach the sway bar and move on the the other side. Then the front is done
