the upper a-arm bushings are probably gone you'd need new ones. When I did mine I used a cut off wheel and a BFH to get the old ones out, and a ball joint press with the bushings in the freezer for a couple hours to get the new ones in.....had to work with the tools I had

Take everything off like your going to put new brakes on, then take off the upper ball joint nut and pop the ball joint out. Then you can remove the two cam bolts on the arm, the bushings are pressed into both ends. You might as well get new cam bolts because your probably going to break one when you try to take them off

You really need to get rid of the torison lift, if it is a real torison lift with differnet keys

how noobish to motor vehicles are you? serious question to analyze where to start with tech.

Please refrain from shorthand notation, use complete sentences, and some semblance of progressive thought.


Also, much better attempt in this thread - thus far.

That introduction thread needs to come with a bottle of aspirin on the side. My mind felt like it was running a marathon with no punctuation. Maybe hes on speed and has no time for proper English.

Anywho possibly back on topic, Devon please put a little time into your wording, youll get better results. help us help you type thing. Ya dig?

/\ Don't forget to support the lower control arm. Use something appropriate i.e. Jack stand on the frame rail and the jack under the control arm, as that torsion bar is your primary up pressure on your suspension.
