Installing new leafs, shocks, stabilizers

I have a 2004 F250 SD with 6" lift. About to replace the old worn out shocks and leafs in the front. Never replacing shocks or leaf springs myself so I was wondering if any of you had any tips to do this. What was the easiest way to lift the truck off the suspension etc etc. I don't plan on getting into the job for another week or so but I want to be prepared.

2004 F250 XLT 6" lift, 37" tires, zoodad, T6,
edge cs, k&n, revx, warn lockers, rhino bars
future: coolant filter, headstuds, bluespring, 4" turboback, tires..dam these tires

also i may be looking to go to a stock with leveling kit or 4" lift. if so i would want to sell the rim and get some 20s on 35s.

The rims on the truck are less than 5k miles on them. They are 18's and here is a link to them. Not sure what they are worth.

Pics of the wheels are on page 6.
