It it difficult to install new front springs yourself? Or should I just have the shop do it and save me the hassle?? Anyone ever done it before? My truck has 1 ton springs in the back and the [censored] sticks up way too far for me so I'm gonna correct this little problem
What tools are required? I take it an air impact wrench is required. Here How I think it is done tell me if I'm right: You jack up the frame on both sides taking the weight off the front springs and unbolt the U bolts. Then you jack up a little more and slide out the unbolted leafs and swap in the new ones and stitch it all up.
Yep, thats basically it. If you are going more than 4" you will need some kind of steering correction like a dropped pitman arm or raised steering arm. And you don't need an impact, just soak everything with some wd40 or something similar for a day or so then go at it with a breaker bar. You will need a torque wrench to tighten everything back up and a selection of sockets.
