Lesson on Trooper upper control arms.

When installed you will not need the bumpers that the stock control arms would set on when lifted.

After installing the control arms lift truck so the front is in the air and at full droop then loosen the bolts on the control arm pivot shaft and let the bushings turn then tighten the bolts you are now ready to use them and they will work like they were made for your truck .

Good luck with your conversion i sure enjoy mine.

i believe they share the same chassis between 84-86 and probably later but it was changed in later models
