Cheers for that :)

I'll do a "how to" with pics when I do it this weekend (weather permitting)
Just a tip for you if you dont have spring compressors.
Dunno if utes are the same IRS setup as sedans but the rear springs arent easy to get out.
For the rears, pop another scissor jack between the axel and the chassis and pry the axel down till the springs ready to pull out.

Very dangerous as the jack becomes spring loaded but highly effective.

Undo the shock and make sure the hand brake is off and they fall out.

the thicker coils on the bottom iirc, king springs usually have it written on them
