TC UCA Install

So here I am....My truck is all apart...I'm trying to do the front end install of my lift. TC UCAs and a OME shock/spring.

For those of you who have put in TC's....Which way did you bend the metal to get the bolt out and back in....and How do i separate the stock UCA from the spindle??

pull the inner fender towards you.

I used a mallet to separate... took a little bit but it worked.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Used a set of vice grips to bend the sheet metal out- and back.
A small pulley puller worked great to separate the steering knuckles and the tie rod ends.

Got it all put together....Gotta re-check torques tmrw and install the rear shocks....i'll be money after that. Driving home wasn't bad either...Didn't hera any new sounds or feel any new shakes or whatever.

Thanks for the assist guys!!
