  • 19mm socket
  • 17mm wrench

Installation Steps:

1. Jack up car and place it securely on jack stands.


2. Remove factory inboard adjuster bolt and eccentric washers with 17mm socket and wrench.


 
3. Clean the surrounding area on the chassis with degreaser to remove any dirt that may have accumulated in the adjuster location. The lock pieces are a close fit and any excess dirt or corrosion may cause them to be a bit difficult to seat flat.


 
4. Install lock pieces into the adjuster rings on the chassis. The longest flat sides should face upwards as pictured below. If the lock cannot be seated flat inside the rings, then lightly tap them with a soft faced hammer to seat.


 
5. Install the provided toe arm bolt through the locks, chassis and toe arm. Install the provided nut onto the bolt and torque to 70ft-lbs with the 19mm socket and wrench.

       
 
6. Repeat steps 2 – 5 on the other side of the vehicle.
 
7. Lower the vehicle.
