We're picking up the installation at the point where the new front components are installed. To get to this point, the factory sway bar, shocks and control arms were all removed from the vehicle. The new grease fittings are installed into the new X-Flex control arms, and then the control arm bushings and sleeves are lubricated using lithium non-water-soluble grease and installed. The lower control arms are then adjusted to a length of 16 inches from center-to-center. The control arms are made from 2-inch-diameter DOM 1/4 inch-wall tubing.
