hey all, I’m mid install on my toytec blistein 5100 on my 07 FJ.. After a struggle to get the new coilover in, I detached the UCA from the steering knuckle to allow more downward room to get the bottom seated and the bolt through. I got the coilover instlled, but now I’m left wondering how to get the UCA and knuckle close enough to put the bolt on and reattach. I thought I’d jack the lower a arm up but the coilover is too loaded and this only raises the entire car. What are my options here? Remove the coilover, reattach the UCA and steering knuckle, and somehow thread the coilover in there? I couldn’t find a way to do this. Alternatively can I compress the springs and then jack up the lower arm? Where’d I go wrong? Appreciate any feedback!
Some additional info, sway bar removed and also had the lower arm detached from the spindle. That also helped get the coilover seated without putting too much pressure on the wiring coming down the knuckle. I read the OME install here in this forum too which didn’t mention needing more room. Hope I didn’t mess this up too bad.
