I've never done one but I'm sure you'll need to put the frame on jack stands high enough for the tires to be off the ground, then you'll have to jack up the axel to free up the weight on the springs. Then I think you should be able to start the tear down at that point.
Take pics of your progress and post them up for us who haven't done one yet.
