Currie anti rocks?

Has anyone had an issue getting the arm onto the splines I had to use a crow bar to get the thing on and beat it with a hammer

I had a bit of trouble on one side. I used a piece of 1/4 in plywood and a big hammer. Other than that it was an easy install.

I would think you are fine as long as you got the safety bolt tightened down on the ends of the bar.

Almost sounds like the holes in the bushing are too large; it took a good bit of effort to get the bar through the holes, so when beating the arms onto the splines the torsion bar didn't move for me. Is yours not like this?

To answer your question, I'd beat the arm on a bit, and then go back and beat the other side to even up the bar. Rinse and repeat.

The arm needs a crow bar to spread it to get it on the splines

Then maybe you're doing something wrong. I press it on with my hand to where you can feel the splines engaging properly, and then tap it on with a BFH. I really had no issues with this, and can't remember having to hit it that hard.

Never had that issue myself.

You shouldn't have to do anything more than tap on it. Are you sure the bar splines are registering properly with the female splines in the arm?

only issue I had was getting the far end of the bar to go through the nylon bearing on the other side of the frame holes ... greased it up wiggled it around until I felt it hit the center hole socket, then drove it in. Once the arm was centered on the bushings lever arms weren't any trouble at all
