jack the ***** up
remove wheel
unbolt swaybar endlink
unbolt shock
let the ibeam drop
youll need a 1 1/8th socket to get that nut off
remove nut, then turn coil counterclockwise and it should drop the beam completely

When i did mine i put a 1 1/8th socket on a breaker bar and put it on the top nut and took a 1 1/8th wrench and put it on the bottom (head of the bolt) i postition my self to where i put my foot on the bottom bar and grasped the top breaker bar and pryed until it came loose. It was a b**** to get loose. Spray some PB blaster on there if its really kicking your a**.

That main bolt for the coil is a real bugger... I ended up borrowing a heavy duty and impact and some time from Toreador4x4. We had to mapgas and PB Blaster the junk out of that bolt while working it with the impact. Took so time but it eventually came loose.

should have PB blasted them or WD40... heat will be your friend too... as well as a breaker bar... I've had mine off so many times now, it takes nothing to crack that bolt when I need too :) WHEN YOU PUT THE NUT BACK ON TO TIGHT IT.. MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN THE THREADS AND SPRAYS THE THREADS WITH PB BLASTER/WD40
