coil spacer install

my coil spacers should come in tomorrow for my '05 f250 and so I've just been thinking about what I'm gonna have to do to install them. I know that on a jeep you're gonna drop the sway bar and trac bar...and if there still isn't enough droop in the spring then disconnect the shocks as well. I am just curious for anyone who has done this themselves to their truck how difficult it is without a lift or spring compressor. I am just wondering if I am going to be able to jack the frame up high enough, or if I am going to run into problems. any advice would be greatly appreciated to make this process take a short as possible!

Don't know if you installed it yet but are you talking about the leveling kit? If so, when mine was done, they had to use a spring compressor. I also went to a longer shock.

What you do is you lift the truck and rest the frame on some jack stand then you take the wheels off. Next you take the shocks off and get the jack that came with your truck and put it between the radius arm and frame and extend it until the coil seperates enough to put the spacer in and you do one side at a time.
