  • Q:

    How does the spring fit on it?

      You need to jack up the front about as high as you can get it and place it on jackstands. Remove the wheel, brake caliper, the anti-sway bar links, ABS sensor, and shocks. If you have cam bolts, take a Sharpie and mark the top so that you can be close on the alignment with the new arms. Then remove the steering arms. You have to use a pickle fork, ball joint press, or smack the crap out of the bolt to get it up and out of the spindle. Then put a jack under the lower arm between the shock stays and the spindle. Provide just enough upward pressure to keep the spring pressurized. Remove the cotter pins and loosen (but not remove) the upper and lower ball joint nuts. Try to make the upper arm budge by smacking upwards with a rubber mallet or deadblow hammer. With the upper arm off, you can then lower the jack slowly until the spring falls out. Then remove the lower arm. A breaker bar is helpful here. Now to put everything back together again. Replacement is just the reverse. Mount the lower control arm to the frame, jack it up until the spring is seated, and install the upper control arm and everything else. Remember to return the cam bolts to the same position as before (turn cam bolts to adjust, then tighten the nut while holding that position). Note the caliper hung from a coat hanger and the rubber gasket on the jack saddle to prevent scarring the finish on the arm.
