Default What are the steps to remove struts on 06-09 ram 1500 4x4?

I bought Rancho quicklift struts for the front of my ram 1500 4x4 (2007). Can anyone post the steps to remove the stock struts and replace them with the Quicklifts? The quicklifts come with pretty much no instructions. Thanks..

Remove nut/bushing/plate for sway bar end link. Remove nut for tie rod end, and pop tie rod end loose from knuckle with a bfh. Loosen 3 nuts on top of strut. Loosen bolt/nut attaching strut to lower a arm. Support lower a arm with a jack. Remove nut from ball joint on upper a arm. Smack the side of the knuckle, near the ball joint, with a bfh until the ball joint pops free. It should pop out after a few good wacks. Remove three nuts from top of strut. Remove nut/bolt from lower strut mount. Slowly drop jack supporting the lower a arm. let the whole thing sag down and remove the strut. Reverse to install. You may need a spring compressor to fit the new strut back in. Get an alignment before you drive the thing too much.
