We have the new parts but want to know if there is any precautions such as when taking the stock ones off, and we also want to know the torque specs for the bolts.

Do we let the back end sag or what? Never done this before and didn't see anything while searching

Ok...so, the rear shocks are pretty simple..top bolt/ bottom bolt., remove. Do one side at a time. You can raise the truck up by frame in rear a bit~let body raise up from axle some to work out shocks.
For the front struts however...unless you have a sturdy strut/spring compressor...and know how to use it properly...I would strongly recommend getting quick struts for the fronts..which is basically the whole spring strut assembly together. Makes it a much easier install...good luck.
