If you have big enough jack stands I'd jack it up and put the jack stands on the fram rail right next to the front spring mount for the rear springs. Chauk the front wheels then use the jack to lower/raise the rear axle. That's how I'd do it.

if u had access to an engine hoist id use it to lift the rear end from the reciever hitch and then loosen the springs and slide the block in..i used that method for many of my lifts
