Don't remove the entire leaf pack from the truck.
Remove the u bolts
Cut the head/nut of the old center pin
Bend back then alignment clamps out of the way
This lets the axle drop from the pack (with the frame resting on stands) the top leaf stays attached to the shackles. The aal goes in third from the top. Installation is reverse order and make sure to have a buddy help

Good luck with the leveling. I maxed mine and they're still only at 23.75. But I'm still happy with factory style rake now
