Lift Install - Day 3


I installed the front lift today. It went well except for a pressed in stud that I couldnt remove.

I installed the rest of the Rubicon Express RE6030 3.5" Superflex Lift with the Twin Tube shocks. I started with the left side and I had trouble from the beginning removing a stud that held the sway bar connects on. It is the T55 torx head bolt. It is deceiving because it has the torx head and you think it is supposed to turn but it doesnt. It is pressed in and has splines so there is no way it will turn. Once I figured this out I was able to remove it with no problem. Everything else was just remove the old and install the new.
I did need to adjust the RE1600 trackbar so that it would center the axle to the right location.  It was helpful to have my buddy Tyler there to assist me doing that part.
All in all it wasnt a bad install. Just removing of the bolts was the hard part just like previous days.
