Did brakes, new headache?

Put new pads calipers and rotors on yesterday and it went ok. After I pulled the passenger side front wheel I found 2 cracked leaf springs (the bottom 2 in the same spot). I found 4in. replacement lift springs from superlift. How hard are they to install and how many hours should I anticipate for the labor? Also is there anything else I need to do besides replace the springs/u bolts and new alignment?

U do not need an alignment as this will not affect it. The bar that aligns the wheels goes from one wheel to the other and stays on the axle. Lifting does not affect it.

What is the best way to do it? Jack it up by the frame and take the u bolts off and re-assemble?
