I have the upper control arm installed but not fully tightened just yet. The lower control arm is bolted to the body of the car but i cant get it to line up with the bolt hole on the axle. The axle must have shifted cuz its a couple inches off. Any one have any ideas, advice, or instructions. Thanks in advance

You need a extra set of hands to push the axle in the correct position to line in back up

when Robostang & I did this (we helped each other with both cars) we had the car in the air on jack points and did one side at a time holding the rear end up some with a jack.

I did mine on a hoist which is so much easier but I also had problems lining up the control arms. Big pry bar and an extra hand helped.

If you have the pumpkin of the axle on the jack then you should be fine what I did when changing the upper arm I took one side of the shock off to give more playing room and you have to push the axle but remember to also twist so it's gonna take some muscle . Hope this helps!!

On the upper torque arms there is a cut out there where you can use a pry bar on to twist the rear different to help line up the bolt holes
