Front end suspension lift

I finished the Rear lift. Did the shackles and had to order new mount plates and U bolts for the shocks to get then on since the stud was so rotted out she snapped.

Now how do I go about my front lift? I have new spindles, brake lines and front shocks. What needs to come out to get the spindles in?

Wheels, brakes, dust shields, and the spindles. Watch some YouTube videos so that the springs don't come flying out of there headed to another zip code.
I'll add that you shouldn't cheap out on spring compressors either. I have a set of Hobo Freight ones that I used once on some struts, but I'd NEVER use them on coils. Way too risky. Borrow a set from the parts house. Much better and safer.
