Lost My LCA Install Instructions

Trying to kill my DW, got a set of front fixed LCA's. Can I replace these on the ground or do I put the body on jackstands, the axle on jackstands, or both.
Mucho Thanks.

do one at a time so that the axle doesnt shift too much. it is not necessary to jack the jeep up or take the tires off. I have done this many times with the jeep just sitting there parked.

here's a good trick you might find handy. to push the pinion down away from the jeep, use the stock bottle jack between the frame and the edge of the pinion. Works pretty good and no need to fuss with ratchet straps and chains, or jacking the axle up and down to try to get it to line up.

Thanks, Harry. I didn't think of the bottle jack trick, good idea. Going to do it now. Thanks again.

No prob, I find that due to the angle the bottle jack is at on the frame it tends to slip sometimes, so I jam a wrench between the jack and the TB mount to keep the jack from slipping under the pressure.
