It took me approximately three hours. You'll need at least two jacks and spring compressors are helpful. I borrowed the compressors but couldn't use them because they were the type that need to go up the center of the spring, you'll need the type that grab from outside of the spring only.

In the end I just removed both upper and lower ball joints and was able to get the spacer and spring in without much trouble. I have seen plenty of post here though that claim it nearly impossible without compressors. I have a 2WD perhaps its more difficult on a 4WD.
