Once the truck is stabilized on a level surface and blocked safely, the rear is lifted to allow the axle to hang.
Once the lower bracket orientation is established (different between diesel- and gasoline-powered trucks), the bracket is positioned over the axle. It is secured with a large U-bolt, and the lower spring section is bolted in place.
Lifting the front and allowing the axle to hang will provide good access to the factory jounce bumper (arrow). It can be removed by hand using a firm grip and a twisting, pulling motion. If the bumper is too tight, it can be encouraged with a large flat-blade screwdriver.
