Yup I need to find a coil spring compressor though. Taking it to class tomorrow to see if they have a set up there, I know they have one for struts where you remove the strut then put it in the machine to remove the coil. For the cherokee you need to compress the coil just enough in order for it to clear the bumpstop so I need the hand held compressors that clamp right on. And I know the sticker fits perfect there!

Um when I did the lift on Cimmers Jk we just dropped the axle and kinda squeezed the coil just a little and it popped off and then we put in the spacer and just squeezed the coil a little more. Got it done in about 20 min.

I tried to just let the axle hang but it didnt provide enough clearance. I removed the sway bar and the shock yet I still couldnt get it out. Took it to school and used a coil spring compressor and finally got one out. The nut on the driver side sway bar link was seized up and snapped, and I discovered the stud on the passenger side link was bent. I replaced both sway bar links and installed a prothane polyurethane bushings kit. Lastly, one coil is in, the 2nd goes in tomorrow morning. Thats all for today.
