Each link is replaced one at a time. You'll need a 2-inch ratchet strap between the frame and the axle to hold the axle in place while each respective link is removed and replaced. I didn't have a 2-incher, so I used a pair of one-inchers. Installation is done with the rear of the vehicle supported by jack stands and all four tires touching the ground.
