Urgent! Need Help ion lift Kit

When it says drill out bushing, which one are they talking about.

The front radiator or the front cab?

Please help


P.S. PA instructions suck ***

I believe they are talking about the front most mount (the one on each side of the radiator). I had to do that to mine if your talking about the PA 3" BL.

It's all good. Make sure you use the exact size drill bit they say.

I just tightened them nice and tight with my hand, on the end of a 18inch wrench. They have not loosened in almost 1 year.

Yea, I just cut off the threads on the bushings on kevins and victors truck. So much easier than drilling (unless you have a drill press it's impossible).

A tip with the cab is oging to be the heat...heat up the cab bolts from the bottom (under the truck) to melt the loctite or you will have a hard time getting them off. Use an impact to make it easier too.

We didn't have a drill press though, but thanks for the tip!!!

For kevins we did it in the parking lot of his townhouse, and vics there was no excuse...mine was done w/ a drill press...

well like a pair of vice grips and a normal drill should work fine.

I did mine by myself, without and impact or torch! I ended up using a 18" breaker bar and putting a plumbers wrench wedged with the frame to hold the bottom bushing from spinning. I had fun!
