If you are installing extended radius arms you best have a big coresent, 1 1/8" wrench or very deep 1 1/8" socket. The stud that holds the bottom spring cups and radius arms are on there tight as tight can be. It took me and a buddy pushing and pulling to break them loose. Soak, soak, and more soak it and then hit that nut with a BP hammer.

soak everything in WD-40 then light it on fire. it's cool looking. avoid your gas tank though.

easy way to get those big bolts on the radius arms: 1 1/8" combo wrench with a piece of pipe on the end. tons of leverage.

I welded a 1' piece of 1/2 inch boxed steel to the end of a 3' piece. Looks like a big T. slip the long open end over your ratchet, and act like a lumberjack. You can even get crossthreaded bolts off with ease.
