Is it manual management or auto management?
If you only have the struts, you need to get the mangement kit (maby accuair e-level)

I would ask Airforce for an installation manual, or take them to a dealer and get it mounted :-)

check out this video, maby it can help you

Generally, you should not need new lower control arms. Each kit is different though so take that with a grain of salt. The bag will sit in the old spring perches and be secured from coming loose/out by the strut itself. For my Airlift kit, it needed adapters fabricated for the top of the bag just to sit in the perch more securely, but that's it. There's pics in my F/S thread if you need reference.
