I'd do it all at once that way you can have it all done at once.

I wouldn't think you can since you they fill be fully or close to fully extended.

You'll be okay for a little while if you really want to. The main risk would be over extending the current shocks, but if they are getting replaced its pretty much a moot point.

No but you might have to disconnect the sway bar (if you have one) so that you can get the I-Beam to swing down far enough.
