Installation help with Rough Country lift

They told me to remove one shock at a time when installing me 2.5 lift kit.
I did it this way for the rear. I will install front on Saturday.
Do I need to remove 1 shock at a time and do 1 side at a time like this.

The rear was sort of a PITA. It seems easier to let the whole axel down remove springs and replace.

Thanks.

BTW Springs and shocks.

just let the whole axle down. It will make it much easier to install the springs. Also dont drill your trackbar bracket until after you measure how far your tires are off.

Is there a specific top and bottom, or does it matter ?

the shocks can only go in one way, if the bar pins are already pressed in its obvious.

If you have the RC 2.2 shocks the can goes up just in case the bar pins are not pushed in...but they should be.
