Default Need help with 3" Rough Country Suspension lift

So I got my Rough Country 3" lift for my 02 Ram 2wd. It's the front coil springs, 4 Nitro shocks, blocks, and U bolts for the rear.
http://www.roughcountry.com/dodge_2wd_02-05_3.html

I can't find a good step by step for doing this and rough country didn't provide any instructions. I viewed the instructions for the 6" lift, but this wasn't much help. I need to be able to pull the old spring and shock, which will be replaced. Anyone have good but brief step-by-step of what needs to be disassembled and in what order? Its looking like I need the coil spring compression tool from Advanced Auto in order to get this new (larger) spring in place

Thanks
B

your pretty much just going up to step 8 and then step 13. When I did mine I took off the caliper, rotor and sway bar links.

steelman,

You can go on RC's website and download the instructions. They are a lot clearer on there.

I'm putting the 3" lift kit on my 99 Ram 1500 4x4. the problem I'm having is trying to get the lower control arm cam bolts without having to cut and replace the bolts. The bolts are way expensive!!

Eric
