I did mine in the driveway along with drop springs and spindles. Actually did the springs numerous times until i got them where i wanted. Jack stands and floor jack made it not too bad of a job.

Had mine done in '14 by a large nationwide auto chain. Now it's a couple years later and there's that sound coming from the front end like someone dragging a loose chain around.

With the 5.7L i've used anywhere from an 8 to 15. used larger on one or two occasions, but i can't remember what for.
Good deep wells are an investment like any tools.
