Excellent! One warning - after tightening all the bolts at the ~15" level, you'll find that you will need to push down on the wheel carrier to get it all the way down (to the travel limit of the shock). You'll need to do this to get the compressed spring back into the LCA. It will make more sense once you get to this point.

IIRC, access to the strainer area is a real nuisance with the subframe fully installed. Siphon the tank empty first and there should be only a quart or two of fuel left, so you'll get just a sprinkle instead of a bath. A large socket (46mm, like this one) is needed to unscrew the strainer.
