Ubolt Flip Kit questions

Bought the All Pro ubolt flip kit, and I want to install it today. I was wondering, do I even need to jack anything up (Jackstands, rear axle, etc) since the leafs sit on top of the axle? Also, apparently the nuts all pro gives you are some fancy lock nuts that are a PITA to tighten. I was just wondering the best way/ any suggestions to go about getting them tight. Finally, Is there a write up on this? Thinking about doing one...

Nevermind, Got 'er done. The nuts were a little hard, but it wasn't a problem. WD40 worked better than silicone spray, but either will help. I ended up jacking it up, and put it on jackstands, just so I had the tires out of the way. However, I do not think it is necessary to jack the vehicle up, but I would recommend it.
