Questions Regarding IRO CA's and Adj. TB

Today I wrestled with my front upper CA bushings, replaced the pass side after 3 hours of cussing So now I've got all my CAs on except for the rear A-arm. I have just a few small questions.

Does the driver side UCA bushing require burning/cutting out the old bushing? Or can I just press it out?

Also, where should I put the washers at that were included with the kit? I noticed that the LCAs looked like they needed them but I haven't put any of them on.

Lastly, what the hell have y'all been doing with your adj TB nut? I've tightened it countless times, used red loctite, everything... But it still will come loose after awhile. I'm at a loss.

UCA bushing above the diff? Presses out the same way as the passenger side.

Find the directions on the IRO site for their short arm lift. It should have instructions on where to put the washers. You definitely need them. I can't recall exactly where they all go.

Red loctite worked on my JKS trackbar. Use more loctite and tighten tighter?

Upper bushings are a pain in the a**,I drilled mine then chiseled them out carefully.As far as the control arms, I remember IRO telling me push the fronts in by putting washers on the outside for most tire clearance and the opposite in the rear.I'll repost after looking later if I'm wrong,but pretty sure.What track bar you running,my JKS never came loose with no locktite on it?

Every time I look at my Jeep it cost me more money!
