I put my entire trailer up on jack stands and did one side at a time. Seemed easier since I was replacing the equalizers etc that connect to both axles. A day to lift, day for each side then down made for three weekends.

Mine was out of alignment due to sagging springs so once replaced all was good.

Sagging leaf springs do not change the so called alignment on a trailer..... Unless one is sagging more than the others.
