Honestly. Just grit. We’re both north of 250lb and rep north of 500 for squat and dead lift. We’re just big dudes. I compressed the springs with my hands and knee and he pushed the axle down. The front passenger was the hardest.

Im sure someone who is a real mechanic can come up with something easier? Sometimes we can get away with not being terribly bright.

Edit- renting a clamp style spring compressor might work?
I'm 155lb soakin wet and did most of this myself.. my boy did help with the spring install and some other 4 handed needs.. not sure I got the lca torque tight enough but that what the alignment shop is for!
Aligning up a couple bolt was a pita, rachet strap and rolling the tire helped a ton.

:like: you beat me to that ratchet straps a couple of good ones can really help, and or a come along. Following with a good floor / bottle jacks.

If you have Rock Hard side rails the ratchet straps and come along can be a lifesaver if you're ever doing transmission removal or clutch replacement for the matter if pulling the engine you can support the transmission with it.
