Leveling kit help appreciated

Just got the top gunz 2.5 leveling kit. The instructions they send are a complete joke...love to know a step by step installation guide if any of you have any. Pics would be awesome. I have a 350 srw just FYI.

Are they just the spacers? If so disconnect the brake lines from the frame so that you have some play. Disconnect your sway bar. Disconnect shock from axel. Put jack stands under the frame. Have a fat friend stand on your axle and you will have enough play to pull the spring out and slide the spacer on and then put the spring back in. Its pretty easy. I know this is not the professional way, but it works very well. I have done 3 6.4 leveling kits this way. Takes about 1.5 hrs drinking beer.

I just did a readylift 2.5 SST leveling kit. Jack the truck up by the frame until tires are like 4 inches off the ground.. jack-stand the truck, move the jack to the front dif. jack up the front axle, disconnect everything but the control arms, and then just lower the front axle. coils will un-compress and you will have more then enough room to put the spacers in. then just re-jack up the axle and put everything back on in reverse order.
