how to on a level? easy as pie....you will need new shocks

take tire off, brakes, hub, seperate sway bar, spindle on top or bottom, rent a spring compressor and then allow lower control arm to fall, take spring out and put spacer on top (with or without stock isolator) then reinstall back the way you took it apart

dont forget to put the end of spring in the indention, and you will need an alignment afterwards

You can use your old shocks.

Remove your shock then use an internal spring compressor to compress your spring before you jack your truck then jack it up by it's frame and remove the tire. Once you have your truck in the air with the tire off take the nut off of your top ball joint then tap your upper control arm out of the way and slip the spacer over the top of the spring. Reconnect your upper ball joint and throw your tire on. Lower your truck to the ground then take the spring compressor off and install your shock.

It takes about 30min to level your truck.
