    installing T&T Customs y-link long arms

    this is my first build up with control arms. i'm installing the y-link kit from t&t today and i am a little overwelmed with the amount of drilling and tapping into the unibody of my xj. just, wondering if anyone out there has any experiance with the set up and can give me any advise. the directions i recieved with the kit are what looks like a copy of a copy of a copy and with out any pictures! i'd be a little more comfortable with pictures! i will be working on it till it is done cause i have to drive it to work tuesday, so if anyone would like to come help or even just watch me scratch my head would be great! i have plenty of the shiny blue cans if you are thirsty too! wish me luck! 480-202-0699! i live in magma ranch between queen creek and florence>

    Re: installing T&T Customs y-link long arms

    You got the hardest part done. But you'll need to drop the pan again to attach the arms to it unless you attached them already. IIRC, you can't (easily) tighten the bolts to the arms on the bellypan once it's installed. I remember doing mine on the ground and hoisting it all up. Been running the kit for about 3 years without issue. But I'll be swapping trannys soon and wish I could drop the crossmember without disconnecting the front suspension. Oh well, if I only have to deal with it once every 3 or so years, not so bad.
