The proper way would be to use a coil spring compressor, but what I do is jack up the entire front end and put it on jackstands. Then I set a floor jack under the lower control arm and raise it until it is just about touching the lower control arm. After that I loosen the lower ball joint nut and run it to the top of the threads. Then take a good sized hammer and wack the nut to release the ball joint from the spindle. When it releases the lower control arm will come down onto the floor jack and then you just slowly lower the floor jack and the spring tension will release and then just pull the spring out. Installation is the reverse process.
Keep in mind even that the 1.75” difference may be more than just the coil spring. Sometimes the rear leaf spring on the driver side is sagging as well. Good luck!
Thank you for the info! I kinda figured on the sway bar just wasn't sure about the tye ride ends as will as the brake stuff. I'll be getting busy on it this next weekend, giveing weather & work schedule. Again thank you for the info.No, you will have to remove the 2 bolts that hold the sway bar to the lower control rod though.
