    Just did it last weekend on my 05 dbl cab 4x4. Easy, just take your time.
    1) jack up and place rear end on stands.Make sure to place floor jack under axle pumpkin.. Remove wheels
    2)unbolt bottom shock mounts, remove U-bolts, unbolt the brake lines from axle to give some slack.(2-3 bolts per side)
    3)SLOWLY lower floor jack under differential until there is enough gap to slide block between axle and springs. Blocks have centering pin so it only goes in one way. Slowly raise floor jack but make sure the springs line up with the centering pin with the block. You may have to gently pull on the springs or axle to pop in place. Only install one side at a time !! Install new U-bolts and bolts. You can torque to specs after installing other side. Toytec recommends 80 ft/lbs but some members have stated 37 lbs. I did about 60lbs. Re-install brake line bolts,wheels,shocks,torque u-bolts and you are done.. Re-torque u-bolts after about 10 miles...Search on TW, there is an excellent writeup w/pics under Toytec coilover install..Good Luck !

    Step 1 revision. I meant to say to place jack stands on your frame not your rear end. The floor jack under the differential. My Bad !
