Default Size of nut on 1994 F150 XLt 4x4

I am installing some spring spacers on the front for now untill I get my lift kit, but I am really unsure of how to remove the spring properly, I get the idea of it and am mechanically inclined, no worries, but to my understanding of the directions you have to remove the lower nut to get the spring loose , so I can installed the spaced and new extended stud. Now Biggest wrench I have on me was a 1 inch, and it was bigger then this, do any of you know what size the lower nut on the spring is? Before I go out and hope for the best in getting the right wrench.

As for why put in the spacer, well my back springs are new and the truck sits way to high in the back, so just trying to even it out.

Thanks

Not sure what exactly the size is, but my best advice would be to use a crescent wrench, that's what I used yesterday when I was stuck in that situation and it worked just fine.

That would be my answer, as well. Have not had mine off yet, but I did buy the 2" taller coils for the front of my truck and checked the nut and found I needed to buy a bigger wrench.
