Pre Key mod walk through, how to?

I have time to hit the junkyard tomorrow to get some new pre '08 torsion bar keys but I don't know how to pull them or install, or what tools I'll need. Has anybody posted a walk through of this?

you just need sockets and a jack, or a gear puller. you'll remove the cover over the keys, take the adjuster bolts out, then use the jack or gear puller to lift the end of where the adjuster bolt was then slide out the little plate that is under the key then loosen and the key will be able to be popped out.

some good pics there

Don't forget to also jack up the front of the truck so the suspension is at full droop.The weight has to be taken off the t-bars first.
