We believe these arms are thebest available at any price. Please note that while installation is relatively easy for thosewith mechanical skills and modest experience, novices should employ a professional forinstallation. Also, fit is guaranteed on vehicles that are unmolested that is cars thathave not suffered any front end damage. Such damage can bend or alter the unibodychassis, making installation and alignment more difficult.Installation Of Tubular Upper Control Arms1. Measure your vehicle ride height before you begin. Take the measurements withthe car at rest on a level surface, measuring the ride height from the front of therocker panels to the ground and from the rear of the rocker panels to the ground.Write these measurements down as they will be needed later on.2. The first step is to remove the stock control arms. Please consult a shop manualspecific to your vehicle in order to properly dismantle and remove the necessarysuspension components. Chilton’s, Mitchell or others may be appropriate foryour vehicle. A spring compressor is needed to remove and install the front coilsprings. A COIL SPRING COMPRESSOR COMPRESSES THE SPRING.A COMPRESSED SPRING IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS ANDSHOULD BE DONE WITH EXTREME CARE.

3. Upon removing the upper control arms, make note of the location of anyalignment shims, as they will be reinstalled exactly as they were removed. Onceyou have removed the front shocks, springs and upper control arms, the frontspindles will still be attached to the lower control arms. If lower control arms arealso being installed, the stock lower control arm must be removed and the spindlecarefully set aside. It is not necessary to remove the lower control arms or spindleif only upper control arms are being replaced.4. Fasten the bolts on both upper and lower control arms. Attach snugly but do nottorque them down yet. Make certain you reinstall any alignment shims exactly asthey were removed when dismantling the front suspension. This is a good startingpoint for alignment with the new control arms installed. Since the ball joints arealready installed for you, no additional assembly is required for ball joints.5. If you are installing our coil over conversion kit now is the time to install thecoil over parts which include a pair of newshock tower brackets, two (2) circular upperspring retainers and a pair of springVehicle Shock Towerisolators. If you do not have thecoil-over kit, skip to step 13.6. Remove the stock shock towermounting bracket on each shocktower. Remove the stamped springretainer on the underside of eachfender. Each shock mountingbracket and spring retainer isattached with two (2) bolts. Install anew bracket on each side with thenew flat head bolts. The brackets willonly fit one way. Feed the boltsthrough the spring retainer on theunderside of the fender and capture theshock mount on top of the fender.Tighten the bolts using the suppliedNylock nuts and add blue thread lockerto each bolt.7. The coil over shocks have been prepared foryou. Remove each shock body from itspackage. Screw the spring retaining nutonto the shock body. Apply some anti-seizelubricant on the bottom 1” of threads. Oncethe nut is all the way down you are ready toproceed and the coil over shocks are readyfor installation.

8. Slide the spring (narrow side down)over the coil over body. Place the newspring isolator over the top of the spring.Attach the lower coil over shock body tothe upper control arm spring pocket withthe supplied Grade 8 Hardware. Make itsnug but do not torque it. With the shockmounted to the upper control arm, slipthe top of the coil over shock through thespring retainer and into the shock towerbracket. Install the ½” supplied boltswith washers and Nylock nuts and torqueto 40 ft/pounds.9. Tighten the lower coil over T-Bar tothe upper control arm and torque to 3438 ft/pounds.10. Go back to the spindle nuts and theball joint nuts and tighten everythingdown to the supplied specifications.11. You should screw the coil over bodynut until about 1” of threads are showing.This is a good starting point to set yourride height.NOTE: COIL OVER SHOCKS WILLSETTLE UP TO ¾” AFTER DRIVINGABOUT TEN TO FIFTEEN MILES.Set your starting ride height accordingly.12. You are now ready to measure the ride height again. Take the vehicle of the jack standsand roll it a full car length back and forth two times to allow the suspension to settlecorrectly. Take the same measurements you took in Step 1, from the rocker panels to theground, both at the front and the rear of the rocker panels. Please remember that tubularcontrol arms will lower your car’s front end ride height by about one inch from the stockride height. If your rear springs are tired or worn, the front end may ride higher.13. When the correct ride height is reached, have the vehicle aligned by a professional. Oncethe car is aligned. Torque the bolts holding the control arms to the chassis to 50-60ft/pounds.
