    you replace the shackles in the back of the leaf spring, closest to your rear bumper. you unbolt the stock ones, hammer out the pins and then install the new ones the same way the stock ones came off. its really simple.
    i put mine on in 20 minutes max.
    you will most likely have to cut your exhaust pipe tho. just cut it at the axle and have an axel drop exhaust.

    Ohhhh haha that's a verryy good point I didn't go that simple. Lift the truck and put the frame a good amount of height up. Then use some stand to hold it up and free your Jack. Now Jack the Axle on the differential until it's neutral as possible. Neither hanging or compressed. That way when you hammer out the shackles it doesn't shoot and snap at you. Use the lack to get the Leaf springs to line up to the new shackle height and install the new shackles..

    Savvy?
