How To BYC Upper Control Arm Install

There's a new story entry added:

How To BYC Upper Control Arm Install


Quote:
This HowTo will basically cover the install of a Barnyard Customs upper control arm for an s10. However many of the practices are the same with other control arms from other manufactures so it may be a good reference for you.

don't you need to recieve goods before you can install them? not only that, but does anyone really trust these things?

Re: How To BYC Upper Control Arm Install

A few things about this install that are safety concerns.
  1. Make sure you support the lower control arm befor starting other wise the spring will give you a nice suprise.
  2. When installing the boot for the upper ball joint you will notice the hole for the shaft has a notch. this notch shound be pointed away from the brake rotor when installed so grease doesnt get on the brakes.
  3. It is NOT acceptable to mount the ball joint to the bottom of the control arm. If you mount it to the bottom, the small bolts that hold it on will eventually snap & the ball joint will seperate from the control arm causing you to loose control. By mounting it through the top as it should be, the lip of the ball joint will stay in the control arm if the bolts do break.

Re: How To BYC Upper Control Arm Install

Ok, back on the subject, I ordered a set of BYC uper and lowers about 5 years ago. They are sitting in a box in the garage. I just got myself another 2wd blazer. Should I use the BYC stuff or get something different? Was there anything wrong with the BYC stuff?

Thanks, Brian P.

Re: How To BYC Upper Control Arm Install

Your air valve is sticking open,or it has a bad diaprhagm. It probably has some sort of debris/trash inside the valve. Nice bump of a entirely unrelated topic. Welcome to s10forum
