Rear Upper Control Arms

So Ive had my superlift on for a few weeks now. Ive had some vibration since the lift went on so i ordered the rear upper adjustable control arms from rustys to correct the pinion angle. I cant seem to find any info on installing these. It looks like the gas tank is in the way for the drivers side. Has anyone done this that can offer any advice or pictures?

Did you ever get around to installing these? I finally got mine in this last weekend and it was a pain. You do need to drop the gas tank, but if you have a couple of floor jacks, you can just lower it without disconnecting the hoses. The bushings on rusty's uca's are a very tight fit on the axle side. I used a steel rod and a small sledge hammer to bend the bracket back and it was still a super tight fit. I like the end result, though. Back end is centered, where it wasn't before, and feels more solid going over bumps.

Oh lol. And you didn't have any fitment issues with the uca? Did you get the poly or the heim joints?

The body side are poly bushings. I didnt really have any trouble getting them in; just a few whacks from my mallet.

Did the adjustable UCA's solve your vibration issues?

Not completely but it helped a lot. I think the rest of the vibration is coming from the front driveshaft.

Did you order the heim set? Both of my ends were poly, which is what made it a pain.
