I have an air hammer. Just not the right bit. I bought more death wheels for my grinder. I'll make bliss out of butchery tomorrow before work.

Got the nut and bolt almost ground flush with the other side. Should be able to pry it out not. But need an extra hand. Will have to wait til I can get a buddy over. Still have to attack the other ends.

That looks good. I wish Ford would have sold them in that height lol. Might be a few months yet, but I'm planning on new LCA's as well. That's why I didn't bother to buy new ones when I got new shocks and struts. I'm sure my quad shocks are shot too. Sucks it seems like its a bear to get them loosened up and out.

They are supposed to be stiffer than the stamped factory units.

Thats not a bad price but It looks like they could be a pain to install by seeing what phatspeed is going through.

I don't think the problems he is having are normal. That suspension is determined to remain in place a song as it can.

I agree with Revv, from what Ive seen it isnt usually that hard. Im glad to see tho that he is getting there now. Maybe he can get them done and go out and enjoy it soon with all the new suspension mods.

Don't buy SVE anything. For "budget" lower control arms get Steeda. MM will be best.

Only SVE parts on my car are the wheels and throttle body and plenum.

Drove it. Wow the rear end is firm now. Ride isn't too harsh. But wow does it put some power to the ground now. No axle wrap or anything funky. These Steeda lower control arms really were a great upgrade.

I was able to take a before photo that I took about a year ago and a photo I took tonight. The car looks to be about the same height in the photos. But in person I seems lower. All I know is that it handles way better now.

What??!! You have to do that the first day if not on the test drive! JK. I didnt do a "burnout" in my 96 for like the first year and a half. I would spin the tires from time to time, but not where it was "torqued" at all. The 03 I have done a few, probably because of the simple fact its easier having a little more power, and its an auto so it takes less skill to do it, lol.

I did the ones in the 03 the day before the guy was coming to buy the old wheels/tires. Dont tell him though! They were still 90% tread instead of 95%.
