Re: Replacing upper and lower control arms on a '96 XJ

There is no significant advantage for a stock lift and suspension.
As suggested, change one arm at a time.
I use a come-a-long to pull the axle into position, when aligning the bolt holes.
It's a handy tool for a lot of things.
Both XJs are still Real XJs
