    You'd be better off to crank them down some. It's not fun but you can do it - best off putting them in a spring compressor and taking some tension off the springs be fore ya do.

    but it can be done on the truck ;)

    So probable 620 lb.

    Just jack the truck up and put stands under the frame and oil the coilover threads, loosen the set screw and turn them with a tool.. I use a punch ground down on the tip with an extension for leverage.
