Spray everything down with PB-blaster or your penetrating grease of choice.
you'll need a socket set. Metric i think.
Anyways. work one side at a time. you need to take the Shackle bolts, U-bolts, and Shock off to let the truck and axle relax.
remove the old spring and stuff the new one in. reverse procedure.
