    Does anybody know what you have to remove to take the coil springs out of the truck? so far, I have the shock out, and the shock tower that bolts with 3 studs to the upper spring mount. I can move the coil, but I need another half inch or so. Any suggestions? Thanks

    unbolt the sway bar links and the axle will drop more to give the clearance to remove the springs.

    Thanks johngus for the response. I wish I would have checked back here, unbolting the sway bar would have been way easier. I decided to just make my own spring compressor, and it took some Jimmying, but it worked. Thanks again.
