Finally got around to putting them on today. Couldn't believe how easy the install was. I just wish someone would have told me that you have to pull the rear end to get the holes to line up. I tell you what, pulling the rear end and lining it up with one arm and a leg and using the other arm to push the bolt through was a P.I.T.A!!! I'm very happy with how much my car hooks now. J&M extreme joint lower control arms, and their on sale right now from AM!!

Well I would have told you that it is hard as crap to pull the rear end into place.

I did it with Gerbig, but we put them in back wards, so I was paranoid about it and switched them on my own. I was cranking on that axle and screaming to get it into place.


It was bloody.

I have J & M's also.

next time just put a ratchet strap on the axle(side your working on) to spot on the frame to move the axle where ever you need it;)

I didnt have a huge issue pulling on my sway bar (at least I think it was the sway bar) to get the rear to line up. I just put the bolts in and pulled and smacked at the same time. Took a couple of tries and I thought I was going to scream for a second but they popped right in after a few tries.

Maybe it was beginners luck :D

Its hard to do it yourself, it can be done. Usually if you sit back and think about it theres usually a better way of doing something.

If you do one side at at time it's a lot easier ... with the drivers side I found that jacking up the rear end just behind the driveshaft, with the passenger side all connected, lines up the drivers side just fine.

I did them both at once. It was hard at all. I just didn't expect to have to move the rear end at all. It was a suprise lol.

Having another hand is of much use, I also had trouble getting enough clearance to put them on seeing your not suppose to have the car lifted at all.

I used an extra foot, to get mine on. Everything was a breeze until the point where I had to wrestle with the axle, extra set of legs sure helped getting it all lined up again.
