word of advice, which will make it more difficult to work on, but have things work and line up better, is keep it on the ground so axle is at normal height from the body... your best bet is some jack stands under the rear axle and then pull off the tires... install from there will be easy

Ditto! That's what I did when I installed mine - jackstands in place as close to stock height as possible and take the wheels off to give you some room to work.
