Just Arrived! Savvy CA's

Came home from dropping my axles off at East Coast Gear Supply and there was a big Savvy box on my front step. The full set of 8 aluminum CA's with JJ's on both ends, has arrived!

These things are BEEFY! Can't wait to get my axles back and start hanging them.

you are going to love how your rig rides with these control arms. I recently installed a set of 8 on my rig and there is a night and day difference.

I cant wait. Anything is better than the skyjacker uppers that i had - joints in those only lasted 2 months. Question for you, did yours have the notches in the aluminum rod where you could put a wrench and turn it?

They are the aluminum. Im a little concerned that they don't have. Flat-spots on the aluminum for a wrench.

They caused more problems and just aren't needed.

I purchased the rear uppers about 6 months before the other control arms. The rear uppers have the flat spot but the other arms do not. I used channel lock pliers to tighten the arms.

Read this post for the correct way to tighten. I had problems with them loosening because I wasn't using a long enough wrench (12" adjustable). Since the jam nuts tighten in the same direction from having a right-hand on one end and a left-hand on the other, there's no need for the wrench flat.

True, with reverse thread on one end. It shouldn't even matter.

I have been searching the web, forums, and Stu Olson's site. I'm looking for a write up on how to align rear axle and set pinnion angle when installing adjustable control arms and sye. I will continue searching but any help is appreciated. Thanks
