Installing LCA's Have Some Questions

Planning on installing some J&M aftermarket LCA's this afternoon and need some tech tips. Is it ok to do this with the rear tires on ramps with the suspension loaded, was planning on doing one side at a time but wanted to make sure the nothing would shift when I removed the bolts? Also how does the emergency brake attachment point come apart on the drivers side since it runs through the stock lca? Are heavy duty zip ties suitable for attaching it to the aftermarket lca as there is no attachment point on them? Thanks in advance

You will want the axle loaded and yes you should do it one side at a time. When I changed mine the hardest parts were tourqing the bolt back down tight enough because I couldn't get the right angle, and re attaching the emergency brake line because some of the slack had been taken out of it. An extra set of hands really helps.

Also, zip ties are fine for attaching the brake line to the lca.

Thanks, looks like lube is included with the J&M lca's. Any idea if that's for both inside and outside the bushings?

On my Steeda LCAs I just put the lube on the outside of the bushings, but that's all the instructions called for. Instructions should be included with yours (or maybe they're online). Just make sure you lube them up well or they might squeak.

Got em all installed this afternoon, spent more time messing with the emergency brake cables than the arms themselves. Took it out and got on it a little bit seemed to help out the hop in rear, debating doing UCA next. Looking at it today it's a rather tight fit up in there lol.
