Re: LCA install question

The way i unhooked the cable from the caliper was to use a screw driver to take the tension off the cable with one hand and a pliers in the other hand to grab it and pull it out. It worked pretty easily but u may have to have al ittle patience with it. Otherwise yes the torque should be the same, it will be listed in the instructions on what to torque it back down to. Don't forget to grease them too, there should be taps in them. The way i went about it was to put a jack stand on the chassis of the car and use the jack under the axle to remove the tension from the lcas. It worked pretty smoothly and will you attach the new ones all you should have to do is raise or lower the jack to get the bolt holes to match back up. Pretty easily installation shouldn't cause you too much hassle. Good luck

There is a much easier way to do this....

There is a retaining clip that keeps tension on the cable, it's flat and rusty, pull it out (toward the back of the car). The cable will then slide out from the slot its in and can be rotated and removed from the entire assembly.

Re: LCA install question

Thanks guys.....I thought putting the jack stands under the rear end axle and letting it rest this way and remove jack.This way no movement is likely to happen,which is very important.

Oops. The factory bar was half filled with sand and very heavy. What's up with the sand?
