REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



Remove/reinstall only one lower control arm at a time. If both arms are removed at the same time, the axle could roll or slip sideways, making reinstallation of the arms very difficult.

  1. Raise the rear of the vehicle, place jackstands under the rear axle, then lower the jack so that the stands are supporting all of the weight.
  2.  
  3. Remove the control arm attaching fasteners, then remove the control arm.
  4.  
  5. Installation is a simple matter of bolting the arm into place. Torque the 3 bolts at the body brace bracket to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm) and the nut at the body bracket to 61 ft. lbs. (83 Nm).
