Question Need help : how to install 2" spacers ?

Hello from France,
I just bought these spacers for my 2.5L '98 TJ.
As I don't want to make any mistake, and the kit was sent w/o notice,
would you help me to explain to me to process ?
Thanks for all.

Buying or renting a set of coil spring compressors will make the work alot easier, and 2 Jack stands and a floor Jack, unhook swaybar, and shocks, squeeze spring. Pretty simple, and you'll need an alignment after

get some real bumpstop extensions before attempting to install it...

those jounce bumpers ain't gonna do it. $10 or less and you can get it done. Buy four 2" Performance Accessories "mini-block" body lift pucks from their website and four new Class 8.8 M10 bolts from the hardware store.

That's a really good idea for him! Those longer POS's will most likely buckle...
