I reply to everyones threads. Stupid questions are easy to answer.
You can do it without, but if you like having room to work, i'd take the bed off.
6 bolts, t-50 torx bit. get an Impact drill. loose the filler neck from the gas tank door. Pick up the bed.

Well l'm looking for a easy way to lower it. i'll probably just get a lowering block and fix it at auto rod at school.

A lowering block won't cut it, the leaf spring is on top of the axle. However, the Edge should have a 2" block between the spring and axle housing, remove this block and install 2wd rear shocks and 2wd U-bolts. Other than this you can do a shackle flip to lower the rear.
