Modifications: There is some trimming and cutting involved to install these brackets. The tip (approx 1/4") of the frame horn where the bump stop meets the frame. You will also need to remove the small threaded nubs on the lower control arms where the factory shock bolts in. Once these are removed the holes can be drilled to 3/8" to accept the lower tbar kit. Stock sway bars usually clear fine, aftermarket sway bars usually need the sleeves trimmed so they can be shortened.
Installation: It's super straight forward, drop the torsion bars out and remove the shocks. The old upper control arms come out and it's time to make the cuts and drill the lower control arms to 3/8 for the tbars. Install the new upper control arms loosely while you twist the brackets in to position. Install the short bolt and washer going UP through the frame horn with the lock washer and nut on top. Install the original control arms bolts with thread locker, set your coilovers in with the tbars on top of the control arms and tighten everything up. Get a good alignment and re-torque everything after 500 miles.
Disclaimer: These kits are designed for off-road competition use. Professional installation is required!
