Default How Do you remove the spring coils on a (gen 4) 2005 XLT?

Good Afternoon everyone, I've been having problems with my 2" T6 Aluminum spacer on my coils lately and I've been searching everywhere (including Haynes) to figure out what I need/need to do to get these coils out of my 2005, 2WD. If anyone could direct me to a previous post that I haven't seen or a great website that would be great.

to get them out all you need is two jacks, putting them in with spacers is a different story. Jack it up from the frame put another jack on the lower control arm and remove the spindle and slowly lower the jack under the control arm until it is fully extended. Then the coil will pull right out.
