All the above, but importantly loosen ALL control arm bolts and track bar bolts (removing one track bar bolt completely makes life easier).
I jack up by the diff, place the stands just behind the lower control arm chassis mounts, remove wheels, remove lower shock bolts, remove brake line chassis bracket, remove lower track bar bolt and loosen all control arms and other end of track bar, disconnect sway bar links. Drop axle keeping an eye on the ABS wiring (may need bracket disconnected), spring will just about fall out.
Once fully reassembled, jump up and down a few times before tightening all control arms and track bar bolts at the new height to correct torque setting (125f/lb). Otherwise the bushes will be twisted at the new 'normal' ride height promoting premature bush failure.
Repeat for the other end.
Done it this way several times on the driveway now!
