Has anyone started or already installed these? did you pull the UCA out and then remove the bushings? did you have to drop the cradle all the way down? the back bolts are not looking easy to access.

A couple years ago I picked up a set of the GMPP rear upper arms, which have stiffer rubber bushings. I'm a pretty competent mechanic, but I couldn't figure out how the hell to get all the bolts out, so I had Lindsay do it.

Not that that piece of information helps you, just confirming that it is a big PITA to remove those arms.

Thanks darkman. AAIIC yes this is looking to be a bitch but dropping the cradle may give me enough access to the rear bolt to undo it.

I didn't have to remove the rotors or the shocks. I can see no need to remove the rotor at all. Removing the shock will definitely allow more clearance, but isn't necessary.
