Ya buddy just take off the front bumper. What brand of lift are you putting on? It should take about a day and a half if you're doing it urself...at least that's how long it took me and 3 of my buddies to do mine. You might need a blow torch to heat up that Ford Lock Tight they use..it has to be heated up to like 1300 degrees or somethin...just a heads up bro.

Ya we found that out after we got both nuts off. My bolt heads both go in from the inside of the spring. They put them in inside to out. Can we put them in from the outside. BDS Lift. Were just gettin every thing off right now.What the easyest way to do it, undo everything and drop it but keep a jack under the axle so we can keep the tension off the spring bolts.

Ya man, it's easiest to completely disconnect the axle from the truck and use a jack, then slap everything in, jack it back up and re connect it. You might want to consider going out and buying some 8-guage bolts for your Leaf Spring alignment bolts. The ones that usually come with the kits are worthless...at least thats my experience and I've done about 6 or 7 lifts. Be careful when you use the jack with your axle though...when you connect everything back up make sure it hasnt rolled forward...you want your alignment with your driveshaft to be right on...
