    Jack the car up, put jack stands under the Torque boxes.
    Remove swaybar.
    Put a jack under the existing LCA and remove the lower bolt.
    Remove spring
    Remove Tq box bolt.
    grease everything up good and reverse the process.

    Apologies for sounding like a dummy but what will be gained by changing the LCA and UCA?
