Another shackle question

Sorry to start another one but I have another question. What size jack stands did you guys use for changing your shackles? Where did you set it?

Another shackle question

This was the hardest part for me. I ended up putting a smaller jackstand on a few 4x6 pieces of wood and placing it under the trailer hitch reciever. Definetely not a very good idea but it was the only way for me. If I were you I would find a big jackstand. Good luck.

I used standard jackstands(2-3 ton rated).I placed them on the frame in front of the leaf spring(bracket).I like the stands that have pins instead of the ones with teeth(ridges).
