Do these 2 bushings


Go in the track bar just like this


witch way does the track bar go?Rubber bushing on the passenger side with the the bend in the bar like in this pic? Or different way


Also don't remember why there is only one bolt that came with the upper arms

Yes, those spacers go into the heim joint like that.

Pic#3:
Yes, the bend goes up to provide diff clearance, but bushing goes on the frame (driver) side.

Pic#4:
That bolt replaces the passenger-side upper bolt because you will have to cut off the OEM one, The rest of the mounting locations will use the OEM bolts.

Sir

Give us a shout and we will help you out! CO4L0 is right!

RK
I got the upper control arms on.was abit surprised to see that they would not go as short as the factory ones tho.

I am having a problem with the track bar in a couple ways

The spacers make it to wide to fit in the mounting bracket.So i spent about a half hour filing one down to fit just snug.

But when i went to install the bolt in threw the spacers I ran in to another problem.

One of the spacers inside diameter is way to small for the track bar bolt to go threw:bawling: looking at my above pics you can kinda see the difference in the whole size.




I will be calling wednesday.

Rock krawler. got my spacers and the track bar bolt fit in them both.

Thanks for the fast shipping

One question tho.
I still had to file one down to get it to slide in to the mounting bracket

Is this the correct width or is my bracket out of spec
