Pitman arm puller... The SD have a very large pitman arm that most pullers won't fit around. I had to borrow one from a heavy truck shop. Other than that, some heavy duty jack stands and good jacks. Basic handtools/airtools are all that is needed. You can do it in your driveway...done many that way...
Make sure you get some new ubolts for the rear that are long enough to accomodate the block(if you are using blocks and not lifted springs).
You can get it done in a day if you have never done one before. Half a day if you have done one before. Took me all day to install a Rize 4-link.
