So I finally started my first step today by putting my BMR LCA's on. At the end I realized I left the relocation brackets upstairs...guess I'll be doing those on Friday (had planned on doing the UCA). Anyway, here we go.
All the parts:
Put the rear up on ramps, blocked the front tires and released the parking break. Supported the left side of axle with a jack.
Was a pain getting the parking cable on/off
While I was under I noticed my axle vent was leaking like crazy, going in Friday for that.
Parking cable off
First arm off
Time for new parts!
I tried for a good 45 to get this bolt back in the hole. Found out all I needed to do was lower the jack about an inch...
New arm installed!
Parking break put back on and zip tied to the LCA.
About to be greased.
Other side was done in 30 minutes. Left the jack on the driver side axle, didn't need to move it over. Torqued the bolts to 130ft lbs and was good to go!
Drive it around the block with no squeaks, we will see how she does in the morning.
I plan to do the adjustable UCA next. Anyone have any tips on install?
