Question Lift install

Has anyone ever installed OME shocks/springs/caster correction bushings on an 80? Advice? SST's needed?

20 ton shop press is needed... nothing less. I bent the handle on mine putting all my body weight into pumping the damn thing. When it lets go it's like a shot gun. I can do it for you if you can get it up to boulder.

Someone in the club has the spare arms so you can have a shop press in the bushings and are not down during that time

I'd be interested in those! I have access to a 50 Ton press, but need to determine the correct positioning of the new bushings first.

I can't remember who I gave the arms to...he was not a super active forum poster but said he would definitely be ready to give them to the next guy. Maybe someone better at the search function can find the post?

Edit: forum name is Mod5csi...that's who had the extra arms last

Edit #2: here is the post. His name is Doug and he lives in Parker.
