It seems like there is more to it than that? Do you have to unbolt anything? And how long did it take you start to finish? Any other tips would be appreciated. Thanks.
yea its real easy. i had to get 6 ton jack ton stands cause the 4 tons were flexing bad. i put them on the front of the frame behind the bumper. then take the tires off. disconnect abs connectors, the 4x4 vaccum lines, and remove the bolt holding the brake lines to the axles... then remove lower shock mounts, and sway bar end links. lower the front axle down till you can get the springs out. install spacers and shock extenders.
raise axle back up and reconnect everything. pretty easy. i dunno which one you got but mine makes noise alot and custom diesel said i should use the rubber issolator between the spacer and frame. but i can cause issolator is formed for the spring and not flat on both sides...
