The tops are held in place by the rubber and a tappered hole. The bottoms sit in place in the castings. When you remove them, look at the end of the bottom part of the spring. You can see how it sits in there. The top rubber piece will only fit in one place on the spring.
remove the bottom shock bolt, remove the sway bar link at the easiest piont for you, jack up the frame, jack stand it, jack up the axle to get tire off, remove the brake line at the upper spring tower to give you room to lower the axle, let the axle down until the spring comes loose. be careful! this stuff can hurt....
Easy job! If you sit a little highter and your wheel is off, just adjust the bar going to the pitman arm. No alignment needed!
