best way i know is to take to a good 4wheel drive shop. might cost some money but that way they can take care of every thing while it is there.

The best way to do it would be to bring your truck to my place and have a lift session with the ATL boys...and girls!

Edit:If you wanna drive 4hrs.

it was pretty simple, took less than a day and that was milking it. you may want to take the front struts to somewhere to have the new springs installed if you dont have the tools for it. make sure you look where the top piece that bolts back up in the tower goes as the shock wont line up on the bottom if not.

Definately take the springs to a shop to compress, cost me $20 and saved time and energy. See this for a how to

Dont waste your money buying a spring compressor. The set Craftsman sells was $49 and didn't fit the new springs. The service guys at Sears did mine for $35.

Midas did mine. Manager said just tip the mechanic and that's what the mechanics suggested. This was after we broke one compressor and had been cranking on another for and hour or so. I had OME heavies.
