View Full Version : HFP suspension install question

05-28-2010, 07:12 PM
I started installing my HFP kit I had laying around. I started with the rear unit and ran into an issue with the single lower bolt not lining up when installing the new unit. It would sit way too low from the hole and it took me three hours to find a way to use the jack to push the unit up high enough without raising the trailing arm from below with the jack to get it to line up. Is there an easier way?

Not really, without a buddy to help out. Sounds like you used the same trick anyone else uses when installing something back there...jack that bish until it's close, then Hulk out to finish the job. :thumbu:

Yeah this was a pain for me too. I ended up cutting a piece of wood that would fit through the U in the arm and placing it on top of my jack. Still took me around 30 minutes to get the holes to line up.

Yup, I was planning to do both sides quickly until I ran into that issue. The install guide does not mention anything about that...
