read the instructions and double check you have all the hardware. Oh and make sure you have some help. Makes it easier.

Go to the dealer and get a new leaf spring bolt for the driver side. You can cut off the old bolt to remove it instead of having to drop the gas tank.

I didn't remove that bolt on the leaf. I just pushed the rear end over lowered the leaf and moved the rear end over the leafspring.

All I did was remove the bolt on the shackle, and then loosened the one on the hanger. Then I pulled the leaf around the axle.
