Hey Mike, our truck book says to jack up the truck and take off the wheels then put on jack stands and use the floor jack to support the side your replacing and to compress the spring just enough to keep it there. But jack up the front high enough to get the shocks out from the bottom. Unbolt the top first then the bottom, then replace shock and bolt bottom then the top to torque specs. Not sure what they are for the 2500 but i'm sure if they are on really tight then you'll be okay. Goodluck!
