removing the front wheels also will give you some more room to move around

its a PITA, but not really.
just take your time and be careful when you remove the long bolt on the UCA, it slides forward but there are tons of hoses and cables in the way.

I swapped mine, wasn't actually that bad, other than needing a torque wrench that went high enough to get the values stated.

Even then it took a fair amount of force to hit the number. And some ingenuity to get it to fit.

These numbers will vary depending on pinch bushings (stock type) or poly bushings though. Poly bushings doesn't require much. Stock bushings require ALOT (like 173 ft lbs)

And use a non petroleum based grease for the poly bushings. And keep the big bolt loose while you pump grease into the poly bushings through the fittings. Let it ooze out, then tighten, then wipe it down. I used Lucas Oil 10005 Red & Tacky #2 . Stuff is awesome and has some anti corrosion properties in it as well.

My arms use poly bushings, but called for 185 ft/lbs from the mfg if I recall correctly.


Just looked and it was 176lb-ft.

That's a lot for poly bushings compared to what I've seen from a couple other manufacturers.
