Help quick!

Alright im installing 2" fabtech lift blocks in the rear of my 02 ranger xl. There are no stock blocks on it. I removed the ublots but there is a nut on the center pin holding the springs to the axle. I cant remove the nut because under the spring perch the pin is free to rotate. Whats going on?

no you need to lift the frame off the axle tube! it usually does not stick. you might still have weight sitting on the axle.

I have the frame sitting on jackstands. I supported the botom of pumpkin with a floor jack. With ubolts removed the whole axle just hangs there! Do I need to remove the bottom of shocks?
