Started the lift. having trouble.

I have a 1995 F250 and im in the process of putting on a 2.5 Lift kit , Do i need to put the I Beam pivot brackets on before i put the leaf springs on or it doesnt matter ? or does one way make the process easier? how hard are the pivot brackets to install?

I would think it would be easiest to get the new springs on, with the axle u-bolts not tightened, then doing the brackets. The hardest part is getting the old brackets off, after that its pretty much a cinch.

i put the springs on first and then lined up the pivot brackets, it is a bit of a pain getting everything lined up and getting a wrench on the bolts under the oil pan. have fun!!
