Ooops.....forgot about the swaybar. Way back when I installed my BB (it's gone now), I was always discoed so I could skip the step of removing the swaybar links.

Don't know what you think could possibly be "hammered". The bottom line is you need to remove the spings and put the spacers on, the get the springs back in which will be tighter with the spacers. You have to drop the axles enough to get the springs in/out. There are a lot of instructions around the web and on manufactuer's sites for BB installas (and basic spring installation requires the same steps). It's easy plus you have a 05 so nothing should be rusty.

I did a spring and shock install for the first time a few weeks ago and it was very easy by myself.

Bruck Just did mine. Had to disconnect the sway bar connections in the front and the track bar in the rear. Not sure how else I could have gotten the springs out or back in for that matter.

cavediverjc Jack up one side of the axle at a time. (Jack up your passenger side to drop your driver's side, and vice-versa, making the spring loose in the mount.) Make sure your wheels/tires are removed so your suspension can articulate fully. You don't necessarily need spring compressors, but they do come in handy. You shouldn't have to remove any of the suspension components other than possibly your shocks. A BB is an extremely easy mod and can be done with the most basic of tools.

legman68 I just did a 2" and it was definitely necessary to disconnect things! I didn't need a compressor, but would been easier.

doclouie I had to remove the sway bar connection and shock mounting points and then use a long pry bar to get my 2.25" coil spacers in place. I did not use a coil compressor, but it would have been handy.
