Speed Bleeders only take a few days to get in

For the trackbar, I found that it works really well to drop the old one, bounce the front a few times, and it just about centers itself perfectly.

Hey thanks guys. So i guess what i'm gunna try first is just take off the old bar, back it up, turn the wheel a couple of times to center it up, and extend the bar to the holes with the weight on it. Drive it around the block to let everything settle and measure it to make sure its centered. extend it as necessary. I guess thats a pretty good compilation of everything i've gotten from here.

I installed LCA's and had the same problem about 2-3" off. i tightened everything down and dropped it on the ground. im going to try wratchet straps to a tree since there is nothing in my garage and i ripped out my workbench trying to use that. I hope this works! any advice on something else could be helpful too!

Just get the bushing in there and turn the wheel a tiny bit - if you hear it squeak, it's moving. Generally won't drop out. This can be done solo, but it's nice to have a partner.

You should torque the control arms and track bar when the tires are on the ground.

Doing it with the tires in the air can put a preload on bushings and wear them out quicker.
