Need help Installing 5100s

I was just wondering what is the easiest way to change my front shocks. I have a set of 5100s to put in. |Do I have to seperate the ball joints?

I just changed mine, I didn't separate the ball joints or take the two bolts out at the lower ball joint. I was able to get mine in and out by taking off the sway bar and taking the tie rod ends out. But I will caution you that you'll need a big friggin pry bar to pry down the control arms to get them back in. Mine were set at 0.85 if you set them taller you may need to separate, or get a second pair of hands.

You will need to get a coil compressor, they will shoot out like a bat out of hell if you don't use one.
