  • sway bar links

    I am in the process of installing a 4" kit and need some help getting the old sway bar links off the front. I have unbolted the bottom and taken the nut off the top but they wont come out. I have taken the BFH to it and still no luck. Is there a way to get them out that I am not seeing? Thanks

    I will assume you're going to install longer ones, or quick disco's? If so, heat those suckers up with a torch and then hit'em again with the BFH!!!

        Use a tie-rod puller.

              I didn't have a torch or any pullers so I just boiled a pot of water and let 'em sit in that for a few minutes, then took the BFH to it. They popped out halfway across my driveway.

                  Pickle fork and some heat usually does it.

                  last resort, cut and drill, then beat whats left out. Might need to take the Pitman arm off to do that, make sure you use a good puller.

                    I usually use a pickle fork and while applying leverage tap the knuckle or the pitman arm (I am assuming this is for a drop pitman arm) with increasing force until it drops out. Usually it doesn't need much.
