drive here and ill do them, we will have another RF mod meet at my house

to do them with the jack, i place the floorjack under the control arm, with a 2x4 on it, with the ball joint cup ont he 2x4, and the ball joint in the cup. i jack up the jack until it starts to move the control arm up and tap down on it with a dead blow hammer until it is seated in place
