Once the truck is stabilized on a level surface and blocked safely, the rear is lifted to allow the axle to hang.
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.
Lowering the front will usually allow the spring to seat. It may be necessary to use a piece of wood to fill in the gap temporarily while seating, as was the case in the test installation (not shown).
