its pretty easy, ust a lil time consuming.

jack the front end up so the tires aren't touching.
use the GM torsion bar tool or a Craftsmen 2-arm 3-ton gear puller (thats what i used, $25) to unload the torsion bars.
slide the old keys off (might need a lil hammering).
slide new keys on.
tighten to the desired height.
drive around the block to make sure it stays at that height.
get an alignment.

with that said, if you want to level the front, you should try just tightening the stock keys before you go out and buy new ones. all you have to do is take a ratchet to the torsion key bolt on each side. don't forget the alignment.
Thanks, I would rather raise the front than drop the whole truck.
