San Angelo Help

Has anyone in the San Angelo, TX area ever swapped springs before? I am getting some 12 JKUR springs and want to put them on my 13 Jk. I have never done anything like this. Plugs, oils changes, and tire rotations are about as far as my experience goes.

Any special tools I would need?

I have a lot of small engine repair experience (google shadow UAV) such as complete overhauls and engine changes. Would that be enough experience needed?

If anyone is local and is willing to lend a hand beer and pizza would be on me.

Thanks for any tips or input.

Undo sway bar links and there's a brake line that uses 10 mm wrench. Take it off so u don't stretch line too much and undo your shock. Have jack underneath axle and one behind wheel on frame. A jack stand will work but I prefer jacks. Pretty simple. Should take about 45 min if that. Pm if ya got questions.

Will I need an alignment after? Assuming so but just double checking.
