Question about Chevrolet Blazer
Leave springs are held in with shackles in the front and rear, that is because the length of the spring increases and decreases with up and down movement, so the mount has to move back and forth.
To absorb vibration and sound, there is also a rubber bushing between metal bushings, on either end. Normally you just remove the spring by undoing the nut and pullingn out the shackle bolt. Some times the bolt will get stuck in the inner bushing. Sometimes you can twist it with a channel lock pliers. Other times it is easier to drive it out with a drift. If the inner metal bushing is really rusted to the bolt, sometimes you have to cut it out with a torch. Grease the bolt when you put it back together, to reduce future rust binding problems.

This shouldn't require any special tools or procedures. You will have to raise the vehicle just enough to release all tension and just so the tire just touches the concrete. Take your wrenches and remove the bolts. You may have to soak these down with WD-40 or another good rust penetrant to ease the removal. Let me know if you need anything else. I have diagrams and instructions but this should be sufficient.
