      Next I started tearing into the front end. the hardest part was getting the coil springs off of the axle. i ended up having to remove both LCA's so the axle could drop more. 20170324_080747_zpsbmziyflp.jpg

        After the springs were in i swapped out the control arms, I did the lowers first then the uppers. I hooked 2 ratchet straps up to the D hook on my bumper to help tilt the axle enough to get the bolts in.

          I removed the old tie-rod,drag-link,and steering stabilizer. after i got the cotter pins out i just hit them a few times with a hammer and they dropped right out.

          I replaced the old setup with curries HD steering kit and a rubicon express steering stabilizer. Its a really nice setup, I like it alot so far.
