Another four adjustable control arms were delivered today.
Question: I have a set of RE lowers and a set of RC lowers (in the pic). Im not saying the RE's aren't beefy, but the RC's just seem a whole lot beefier. Should the beefier arms go in the back or in the front, if it matters?
Edit: and do the flex joints go on the frame side or the axle side?
I'm 99.9% positive the flex joints go on the frame side. I'd put them up front too. Use the RE's out back. The flex joints should help with front end articulation. The rear ends seem to never really need any help with articulation.
Honestly, even if the spare is original, it's inside and covered, so not much UV exposure. It would be good to replace it, but unless it's visibly failing, it's much safer to drive on than a separating tire. I'd throw the spare on for the drive to get the other replaced and save yourself the headache.
You guys might have a point. I'll take a look in the morning. If it looks good, I'll put it on. If it looks worn, I'll give it a miss. I haven't actually pulled the cover off to look closely yet. Just haven't needed the spare, thus far, and haven't been able to afford a new one if it's bad.
