Installing lower control arms. Help
 
Hello all. Any help as far as installing lower control arms is welcome :)

Do i have to disconnect anything but the stock lower controls arms when installing new Lower Control Arms?

Dont want to end up dropping the axle or breaking something on accident. Write up or installation instructions are welcome too :D

Thanks in advance

^ X2 - just install one at a time. unbolt from frame and axle, remove and replace.

Ok thanks guys that makes sense :) i wont have enough time for one day to install my kit so i'm trying to get the easy stuff swapped in first so at the end all i have to do is the swap the springs and the shocks and be done w/ it..

I got few hours each day.. but i need the rig every day so i gotta do it piece by piece.. :(

Just measured my control arms.. All 4 stock lower control arms from bolt hole to bolt hole are 15 and 3/4"

Rough country fixed arms for my 00 tj are 16 1/4". All 4 arms are the same length.

Hey guys I'm new to this site. I have a 98tj. And need to replace front lower ca's with the fixed RC lowers to match my rears. Do I need to lift the front end to do this change or can I do it on the ground? Any advice will be appreciated. I'm used to the CJ7 lol. Thanks

My understanding is that you want the axle to be on the ground so that the geometry is correct. You do not want to put on the control arms and then lower it because the bushings will bind (however I'm sure this will work out over time).
