This kit is designed specifically for use with TeraFlex lifts and suspensions. It replaces standard-length control arms with new, longer control arms. The upgrade will improve on-road driving comfort as well as off-road performance.
There have been some in-line changes made to the Long Arm kit that will require the modification of the factory skid plate, or the purchase of the Teraflex’s new Belly Up skid plate (Part # BUT-03). Please be sure that you understand what is required before you begin the installation of this kit.
We recommend that certified technicians perform this installation. Attempts to install this product without proper training or experience may jeopardize the safety of you and the vehicle. These instructions are meant only as a guideline for the installation procedure and are not meant as the definitive source. The Factory Service Manual should be used in conjunction with this instruction guide when installing the components. Read this instruction guide thoroughly before beginning the installation process.
Be sure you have all needed parts and know where they will be installed. Read each step completely as you go. If any parts are missing from the kit please call 801-288-2585 for replacement. Take every precaution to make this installation a safe procedure. Make safety the number one priority with any suspension or lift installation. Read all safety, warranty, and maintenance information included at the end of the instruction guide.
The main bracket in Teraflex’s Long Arm Kit has had some changes to the rear lower control arm mount that improves the overall geometry of the suspension, and allows the use of Teraflex’s popular modular control arms. Another advantage is that this new bracket design makes it possible to upgrade to the triangulated four link LCG suspension without changing and discarding your long arm bracket. In the future the rear suspension can be upgraded to the triangulated 4 link, while the front suspension can be done either at the same time as the rear, or at a later date.
PASSENGER SIDE INSTALLATION:
1. Jack up the vehicle off ground and secure with jack stands.
2. If the TJ is equipped with factory side steps, remove them.
3. Starting on the passenger side first, remove the front and rear lower control arms.
Note: It is important to remove the control arms from only the passenger side at this time. This helps to keep the axle positioned correctly. The driver’s side will follow later.
4. Remove the lower control arm mounts from the vehicle. Grind the welds away and use a chisel to separate the bracket from the frame.
