LCA bolt help for JKUR

Just started to install my Synergy fixed rear lower control arms. 1/2" longer than stock. Directions say to install with Jeep on the ground one at a time. I tried rocking the wheel and a ratchet strap but cannot get the hole to line up for the life of me. I've read the threads some use ratchets some use the wheel method. Axle mount hole needs to move about 1/2" back towards rear. Any other ideas? I have a 3" Teraflex lift and stock rear driveshaft with stock rear uppers. Thanks

Roll the tire that is on the side your working on. I have also sat in the ground directly behind the tire and kicked it which will move it enough

To tilt the axle back, put a jack as close as you can on the tie rod near the joint where it meets the knuckle on the side you are working on. To tilt the axle forward put a jack under the axle shock mount on the side you are working on.

You NEED uppers as well. You are making pinion angle worse running only lowers. To get em in Put the tires on and roll the axle back.
I highly recommend adjustable uppers to correct pinion angle or you will lose the ds.

Another one for rolling the tire back. I just layed on the ground and rolled it with my foot. Easy.

Another vote for rolling the tire. If you are doing this by yourself, block the tire to hold it in place after you roll it. It took me a couple of iterations before getting it lined up just right.
