About to install my leveling kit...questions

I got one of the cheap leveling kits of ebay. It has 2" spacers for the front and 1" blocks for the rear. Is it gonna be a pain to install? It has the directions and it more or less just says put it on stands, remove brake line and swaybar bolt, put spacer under spring and reinstall. It doesn't have any directions for the rear block. Do I not need a spring compressor or any special tools? I plan on starting on it in the morning so i'm just trying to be ready for any surprises. Its going on a 09 F250 4wd. Thanks

It's very easy. You don't even have to unbolt the brake lines. As long as you have good jacks, you'll be fine. You are just dropping the axle down further and the stock springs will easily fall out. No need for a spring compressor. Slip the spacer in as it says and then put it all back together. If you have air tools and an extra set of hands, you can have the front and back done in about an hour if you know what you're doing.
