Jack up truck on jack stands, remove strut assembly, compress spring, remove strut, install new strut, decompress spring, installation is the reverse of the removal. It was that easy on mine

i used two sets of cheap ass harbor freight spring compressors, one on each side of the spring. It worked but it was not a comfortable feeling

You'll need to determine how high you want her to set and put the ring on the appropriate slot on the shock body. I put mine on slot two but after I added a read leaf spring, I wish I had put them on the first groove....
