Are you lifting it or lowering it?

Agreed. Use jackstands. Also use a coil compressor tool and be careful.

Pssh.

Jack it up, support the frame on jackstands.

Unbolt the sway bar, unbolt the shocks, unbolt the spring bucket, the coil will fall out when you lower the axle do that on each side. If its tricky to get back in, stand on the hub.
