Man that sucks! I hate to tell you but after installing over 25 2" budget kits. It takes me around 1 hour, sometimes a little more. To bad you didn't live closer I would help you out!.

the rear bumpstop bolts can be drilled out.

there is enough room to install a nut on the top of the frame side spring buckets. Just use a bolt that is long enough.
