Can't find instructions on how to install the control arm skids and trying to work on it.
I see that I need to take the bolt holding the LCA in place. With taking that bolt out do I need to worry about the control arm dropping. Should this work be done while the rig is on a lift and not under its weight?

You shouldn’t have to worry too much about the LCA dropping. You definitely want to chock the tire in the side you’re working on, so it doesn’t move. LCA should stay pretty close to the original position.

Thanks. That's what I ended up doing. I couldn't find anyone post about doing it. And wasn't sure if there would be tension on the arm that could make it swing with force or anything. But ended up being really simple
