I take it you're replacing the kingping bushes/seals as well?  Otherwise
Joe's suggestion of using a spring compressor means you wouldn't have to
undo the trunnion bolts.

Get the V8 bushes. Use a vice and a large socket to press in the bushes
and use lots of liquid soap.

If you don't have a front sway bar now's a good time to think about it,
since you may need to replace your front a-arms.

Other than that it's pretty darn easy.  Careful with the springs! 
I used a trolley jack and it felt completely safe.
