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
