Xtreme 4x4 installed Control Arms Backwards

Not a huge deal, but surprising anyway. At 7:45 the LCA is on backwards. MC has the jam nuts on the frame side. You would think they would know.

Most of that build was dog crap anyway. Who puts on a 3" spacer lift, really?

What they take 17 minutes to rebuild the suspension on a Jeep, and you expect it to be perfect??? My guess is that they were just place holders before they swapped the axles. It was nothing that could not be very easily corrected.

Strange build. He mentions it's not a hardcore off-roader. Why $10k+ in axles ?

I totally agree, I thought that was bizarre. They use a Daystar spacer for the lift, but then go to a full set of Metalcloak control arms, and the Currie axels (and not just D44 replacements). Putting in springs and better shocks would have been a rounding error in what those axles cost.

I know the answer of course, paid advertisement.

Sarcasm doesn't slip by you, does it. If I know I am going to pull something apart, I don't care how it goes in. May have been sloppy, but i bet it was corrected.
