1. Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery. Jack up the front end of the truck and support the frame, at the front frame rails, with jack stands. NEVER WORK UNDER AN UNSUPPORTED VEHICLE. Remove the front tires.
2. Remove the brake calipers and tie them up out of the way. DO NOT ALLOW THE CALIPERS TO HANG FROM THE BRAKE LINES! Remove the A.B.S. lines from the plastic clips that are connecting them to the rubber brake hoses. Remove the brake line bracket from the frame and save the hardware. Remove the plastic clips that hold the hard brake lines from the top of the frame and then the brake lines from the clips. Carefully bend the hard line forward approximately seventeen to eighteen inches.
3. Supporting the front axle with two floor jacks, remove the front shocks and the sway bar end links. Remove the cotter pin and castle nut from the drag link at the pitman arm. Using a large hammer, separate the tie rod end from the pitman arm. Save the castle nut, discard the cotter pin. Remove the bolt from the top end of the track bar where it connects to the frame bracket and save. Remove the three bolts securing the track bar bracket to the frame and save with the factory nut tabs. Discard the trac bar, trac bar bracket, front shocks, and sway bar end links.
4. Remove all four u-bolts from the front axle. Slowly lower the two floor jacks supporting the front axle to clear the leaf springs. Remove the shackle bolt at the rear of the spring and let the spring set on the axle. Then remove the front spring bolt and remove the spring from the truck. Repeat this step on the opposite leaf spring. Remove the leaf spring shackle pivot bracket from the inside of the frame. Discard the springs, pivot brackets, and the hardware.
5. Remove and save the front sway bar from the truck and discard the hardware.
6. Remove the nut and washer from the steering shaft at the pitman arm. Using a pitman arm puller, remove the factory pitman arm. DO NOT USE ANY TYPE OF IMPACT OR AIR RATCHET TO REMOVE THE FACTORY NUT. Using the diagram shown BELOW, confirm that the master spline orientation on your factory pitman arm matches the one on the FT310 pitman arm supplied with this kit. If they do not match, you will need to purchase the correct replacement pitman arm. Slide the new drop pitman arm onto the splines of the steering shaft making sure to align the master splines in their original position. Reinstall the factory lock washer followed by the nut and torque to 200 ft/lbs.
