no do it with the wheels on the ground... use a breaker bar if its tight and make sure to turn each side the same number of times

Yep, when I got mine where I wanted it, there was about a half an inch more height in the front than the rear and I had more to go.

I looked at mine the other day, and (from the factory...never been adjusted) one is tightened almost all the way, and the other is loosened almost all the way. This looked odd to me...is it normal? The truck sits almost level, but I was wanting to even out the lift on it.

get yourself a 1/2" air powered impact gun and a 13mm chrome socket and set the line pressure to 150psi and send the bolts home!
