Unless you’ve got the luck of the Irish, you will need to move the axle around to get the control arm’s bushing holes to line up with the holes in the axle or the frame. Even by replacing only the lower arms or the upper arms at a time, we aren’t that lucky, so we use ratchet straps to get the axle where it needs to be. We replace only two arms at once so that the other two arms mostly hold the axle in place.
