You'll be tempted to do all sorts of Mickey Mouse b.s. and smaller changes... take my advice DON'T! Follow those steps and your going to LOVE your mark viii it will be a beast.
Of course all of these modifications assume that your safety related items are all in immaculate condition suspension (air ride or coil conversion) are in great shape, shocks, brakes, bushings, control arms, ball joints and tires. If you vehicle requires attention in any of those areas for any reason whatsoever then this whole thread is a waste of time for everyone involved.
