Are you talking about pulling the axle to replace the lower control arm brackets? If so, there is totally no need, the brackets can be changed in a matter of minutes with the correct tools... Axle does not need to be removed. There is no need for a Jig.....

no need to remove the axle because that becomes the jig itself. the front track bar and the other 3 control arms will act as the jig and hold the axle in place.

just bolt the new mount to the control arm, hold it in place, and weld it on.

BINGO......... just do one bracket at a time.. The brackets that you get from Rusty's will make the OEM look like a soda can....
