wiz be prepared to deal with the front upper control arm bolts where it mounts to the axle. they have a metal tab instead of a hex bolt head. the bolt will just spin. you have to be able to get a good grip on it. i could not get it while on my back in the driveway. when the jeep was on a lift i was able to access this bolt from the front to get a good grip with large channel lock.

tjrhd were your upper adjustables longer than the factory at the lowest setting? I put on the RE uppers and they were 15.25 at the lowest setting. Havent got to drive it enought to know if it is going to affect my angle and cause vibes..

tjrhd Yeah, the only problem I had was getting the axel side bolts out. They were bent so bad the bolts were in a bind. the jeep seems to ride a lot better. I also had to change my shocks when i bent the uppers it shifted everything enough that my coils got into my shocks. I have a vibration at highway speeds but i am thinking it is a faulty u joint that I myself replaced..waiting to get off a job so i can try it and see

Drock The install on the upper control arms was really straight forward and easy, been out several times this summer with no problems.

Upper Control Arm Install

I have a tj Rubicon, Bent both front upper control arms, have new ones to install this weekend. Anyone have any pointers about installing the new arms?
Also I have a 4 inch lift on my jeep, thinking about replacing the lower arms. Anyone know how to figure the length of adjustable arms to adjust for the lift?
