You need to remove the coils. You can rent the spring compressor from autozone or advance auto. Think you get your money back when its returned.

it might be just easier to take it to my mechanic since there is no way around removing coils

Hate to say I spent the money and had someone do it. There are ways to drop them out such as removing the sway bar link and lower shock bolts and jacking up the axle ( look at some u tube vids) but I didn't have a floor Jack at the time.

why do you have no way to remove the coils? do you 6-ton jack stands? have you already drilled and tapped the front spring perch?

and the problem with having somebody else do it is they may not do it right, and you end up doing it over again yourself....

i don't have Jack stands now, i have the ome spacers, which from what i read from the description, they don't require any tapping

On front use re bump stops, the spacers will contact springs at full droop. I made the mistake thinking I could install after springs and had to remove them again to install. Used no spring compressor, jump removed shocks, sway bar and track bar (pita to put back in). For rear I used spacers. No bump stops in buckets as I'm waiting for my energy poly to come in. On fronts I drilled with a 21/64 bit first then used supplied self tapping bolt.
