i dont have anypics but here

it seems easy but can be a pain in the **** AIR TOOLS are a must here in a way.

take out the nut on top of the long bolt going threw the I-beam. its like a 1" or 1-1/4" or something need a long wrench takes a while. that holds the spring on the retainer. depending on what kit you got you will eather get a stud that goes onto the orginal bolt. then remove the sway bar it alows the I-beam to be moved down, and also remove the stock shocks, remeber to heat the lower nut holding it on because its thread locked and if you dont you will brake the stud. and it's good to maybe remove the calaper then have someone stand on the end of the I-beam and the spring twists out. then install the stud extender, then reinstall the spring and lift block then install the calaper and sway bar and finished. also you might have to shaved the poly block to fit the spring not hard just takes a few min..

i have installed about 6 of these leveling blocks now got it down to about 2 hours.

also get 2" longer shocks, I run Skyjacker Hydro's, then be prepared to get hit with a good $125+ alignment bill...
