What are you doing Friday night?

I've got my old LCA's off, which way do the new ones go in ? I think its the fat side is the axle side, and the skinny side is the body side ?

And do I need to grease both the bushings, or just the fitting ? They're tera rear LCA's


I love being a noob.

You just gave me a headache with those upside down pictures. Sorry, I can't help you at all.

Well since you asked, I spent the last four hours celebrating Texas Independence Day. I'm home now to remove my old appliances for replacement in the morning then I'm heading back out.

Pics of how I mounted them - looks right o me









The tera directions basically only said that the zerk should be facing up, so I did that. I also made it so the bend is further down on the axle side, I'm not sure if that matter...

Greasing them I'm pretty sure all I have to do is the zerk right ?

You may need to use some 1/2" washers to shim the body side mount.

Dude how short did you have them set ? I had to extend them a ton.

When did Texas break off? With 2 sick kids, I'd never know.

Hunter did you even look at the pics. No one cares about pics of suspension components.
