Default Leveling Kit for 2010 Ram 1500 4x4

I recently purchased a 2.5" leveling kit for my 2010 Ram 1500 4x4, the site that I ordered it from made it sound very easy to install. Upon receiving the product, the instructions highly recommend using a skilled mechanic to do the installation. Is this install over the head of a "garage mechanic" and is a front end alignment necessary? Thanks

if you have mechanic skills you should be fine and yes a alignment is recommended after the install

I just finished doing a 2.5" leveling kit today, the left side took forever, but after figuring out all the quirks the right side went much faster. Basic tools were really all I used and everything turned out great. Definitely going to get an alignment done.
