Lca install

I'm about to install some lower control arms on my 08 gt. Is it difficult disconnecting the parking brake cable from the caliper? And what type of grease should I use on the bushings? They're bbk if that makes any difference.

Great video that answers your question about the E brake cable.

I didn't even bother with that. Since I decided I was never gonna use my stock Lca's again, I just cut them enough to get the cable out. & mine have poly bushings & I use Mobil 1 synthetic grease

Cutting them for me saved a lot of time

How long did it take you? On a scale 1-10 how difficult would you say it is to install them yourself? (10 being very difficult)

I would say a 1 lol It was easy for me cause fortunately I got a shop with lifts & all the tools necessary to do it. But even at home it would be really easy & with basic hand tools can get you the job done. If you're not gonna use the stock Lca's again I would cut them. Makes it a lot easier.

Even with jack stands it's a piece of cake. Brake is easy. You'll love the difference. It's awesome.

I would keep the stock parts in one piece. You can always sell them to someone who wants to return their car to stock,use them to return your car to stock and sell the aftermarket parts or give them away to a Mustang brother or sister in need of some stocks. It's good Karma.
