The stock-height spindles included with the kit come with a raw finish. We took the time beforehand to lay high-temp engine paint to both the spindles and calipers. We began to piece together the new kit on the upper and lower control arms. We installed the new spindle to the upper ball joint first with its nut. Then, using a hydraulic jack under the lower control arm, we raised the control arm up to meet with the new spindle. We tightened the upper and lower joints with 3/4- and 7/8-inch sockets, respectively.
