Take out the bolts that hold the shocks in. Then take the shocks out. Do this backwards to put the new shocks in.

He forgot one MAJOR part take the weight off the car. Lift it by the frame under the body usually factory lift points are sufficiant... But i'm willing to bet that truck has a spring crused between two plates and attached to the shock. In this case... go to a mechanic who knows what he's doing.... More men loose their lives to improper handling of a coil over design than the auto industry is willing to admit. That spring will take off your head faster than it takes you to realize you missed a step... I saw a CTech loose a leg because he didn't want to wait for the ATech to finish using the spring clamp....

Loose shock go for it.....
Coil Over go to a mechanic... or get a life insurance policy that will be enough to help you family.... Just in case

Good Luck
