Bilstiens install
 
Man I sport myself as a have way mechanic ,but just got my A** kicked with the ATTEMPTED bilstien install....first I have level kit install ,was done by dealer.., second I was all alone ,thinking it was going tobe walk in the park,...not sure what the issue was but I could not get the steering arm free ,few taps with rubber hammer , to beating the shit out of it with real hammer ,could not get lower control arm low enough to pull out strut assembly...the spacer has the shock kicked at a bit of an angle so could not get lower shock bolt back in ....finally back to square one after 3 hours ....I don't get it
:doh:

damn man, this project is kickin your arse.

Best bet might be to get a 6 pack and a friend. The extra pair of hands and an extra brain go a long way. If you need to, get a big 2x4 or a pipe to use as leverage to push the LCA down.

Good luck my man
