    Suspension change time when I'm feeling better, just planning from the couch!

    Would you jack one side then 2x axelstands on trailing arm/chassis mounts and then use the jack to support one axel at a time and do one side then the other

    Or would you do the front and back together?

    If doing front and back together where would you jack from... I have diff guards on so would want to jack off those.

    What about the towing plow on the back?

    Thanks

    Definitely front & rear separately, but both sides up in the air at the same time & done immediately after each other.
    Beware that dependant on the spring lengths & rates, you might need to get the front quite high & disconnect the front prop to prevent it stopping the front axle dropping fully due to contact with the gearbox X-member.

    When doing the back suspension, leave the tail gate open to stop it trying to self level.

    Airs removed already thanks

    Where's your preferred jacking points then? One corner at a time or can I get it up in one without the diffs. (back and front separate obviously)
