Raise and support vehicle at a safe, comfortable working height. Let the front suspension hang freely. 2. Remove the coil spring, shock absorber, upper shock bracket, strut rod, sway bar, upper and lower control arms. Refer to factory service manual for proper disassembly procedure. 3. Be sure to remove the outer bushing sleeve from the strut rod frame mount. 4. Remove any excess undercoating or rust. 5. Using the bushing retainer as a template, mark the holes to drill with a center punch. 6. Remove the retainer and drill the holes with a 3/8” bit. 7. Place the bearing inside the bearing housing, then clamp it to the frame with the bearing retainer and the 3/8” x 1 ½” SHCS and lock washers. Front 8. The bearing stud should already be threaded into the lower arm, factory set at 2-15/16” (measuring from the end of the arm to the bearing). 9. Slide the stud through the bearing, then slide the aluminum spacer over the stud with the larger end toward the front of the car. Secure the assembly with a ¾” Nylok Nut and flat washer. Note: We caster setting should set at around 3.5 degrees positive. Vehicle must be aligned before driving. 10. Attach the other end of the lower control arm to the factory frame mount using a ½” x 4 ½” bolt and Hex nut. 11. Eccentric eliminator plates are includes and one must be installed on each side of the frame. Start out with it in the center, make sure both plates are in the same position. 12. Slide the ball joint boot over the ball joint, then place the spindle over the ball joint stud. A ball joint spacer will be necessary to align the castle nut with the cotter pin hole. Note: Before installing the spindle, turn the ball joint stud so that the cotter pin hole faces front to back. This will make it easier to install/remove the cotter pin. 350 S.

Bolt the upper StrongArm to the body using ½” x 2 ½” bolts, flat washers and lock washers. A shim is supplied and may need to be installed between the body and the arms to achieve proper alignment. 2. The arms are preset at the factory so the alignment should be close, but the vehicle must be aligned before driving. Note: The upper arm mounting holes on many cars have been redrilled 1” lower. This is done to improve the handling. Our cross shaft has the drop built into it, make sure to use the factory mounting holes. 3. Bolt the upper arm to the spindle using the hardware and cotter pin supplied. 4. Attach the Shockwave to the upper StrongArm using a ½” x 2 ¼” bolt and Nylok nut. 5. This control arm is designed to work with our MuscleBar sway bar. The end link will attach to the rear mounting tab on the upper arm. 350 S.

Raise the vehicle to a safe and comfortable working height. Use jack stands to support the vehicle with the suspension hanging freely. 2. Support the axle and remove the leaf springs, shocks and tail pipes. Refer to the factory service manual for proper disassemble procedures. Hang on to the front leaf spring bolts, they will be reused. 3. The square U-bolts hold the upper cradle in place and will slide through two existing holes. Some cars may not have these holes. In this case use the cradle as a template. Note: You may need to open the holes up a bit to turn the bolt into place. 4. Lower the axle and slide the cradle assembly into place. The cradle will be held in place with two 3/8 nylocs and flat washers. Do not tighten these until all the bolts in the cradle have been started. 5. The front of the cradle locates off of the pinion snubber mount. A reinforcement plate is supplied and is installed on the inside of the car. It is held in place by two 5/16” bolts with lock washers and flat washers. Two additional 7/16” holes must be drilled through the floor pan. 7/16” x 1 ¼” bolts, Nyloks and flat washers are supplied. Note: Inspect the factory welds holding the pinion snubber mount to the floor pan, re-weld if necessary. 6. This T bolt will be inserted from the inside of the vehicle down through the factory shock hole. A 5/8” nyloc and flat washer will hold the cradle up tight to the bottom of the car. Note: Cars equipped with the “Drag Pack” option will have staggered shocks. You will have to remove the plate covering the original shock hole. 7. Tighten all the upper cradle bolts. 8. The lower axle mount will bolt to the leaf spring pad via the supplied U bolts. Note: To ease the rest of the install; leave all bolts loose until the lower bars are in place. 9. The large end of the lower bar (the longer one) will bolt into the front stock leaf spring mount using the stock hardware. 10. This bushing in polyurethane and is lubricated at the factory with lithium grease. Future lubrication can be done with any non-petroleum based lubricant. The other bushings are rubber and do not require lubrication. 11. Swing the bar up to the axle mount and insert 5/8” x 2 3/4" bolt and thin nyloc. Do not tighten just yet. 12. Bolt the lower Shockwave mount to the bottom two holes of the lower axle mount using two 1/2” x 1 1/2" bolts with Nylok nuts. The U shaped bracket will point towards the inside of the car. 13. Raise the axle to ride height. There should be approx. 14 1/2" from center eye to center eye on the Shockwave mounts. 14. Bolt the axle tabs to the upper bar using the 5/8” x 2 3/4" bolt and nyloc as shown in the picture. The upper bar should measure 9.5”. Bolt the other end to the cradle. 15. For now just lay the upper tabs on the axle. Pinion angle and axle center must first be set. Centering the axle is best done by leveling the car and hanging a plum off of the quarter and measuring to the axle. Pinion angle is explained on the next page. 16. How do you set the pinion angle? On a singlepiece shaft you want to set it up where a line drawn through the center of the engine crankshaft or output shaft of the transmission and a line drawn through the center of the pinion are parallel to each other but not the same line. A simple way to do this is to place a digital angle finder or dial level on the front face of the lower engine pulley or harmonic balancer. This will give you a reading that is 90 degrees to the crank or output shaft unless you have real problems with your balancer. At the other end, you can place the same level or angle finder against the front face of the pinion yoke that is also at 90 degrees to the centerline. If you rotate the yoke up or down so both angles match, you have perfect alignment. Road testing will tell you if you have it right. If you accelerate and you get or increase a vibration, then the pinion yoke is too HIGH. Rotate it downward in small increments of a degree or two until the problem goes away. If you get or increase a vibration when decelerating, then the pinion yoke is too LOW. Rotate it upward to correct it. 17. Once all of the angles are set, tack weld the upper tabs to the axle. To avoid frying the bushing remove the upper bar first then weld solid. 18. Install upper bars. With the vehicle at ride height snug all 4 link bar bolts. 19. Apply thread sealant to the air fitting and screw it into the top of the Shockwave. Bolt the Shockwave into place using 1/2" x 2 1/4" bolts with nylocs. 20. The installation is complete but you want to check clearance of the brake lines, parking brake cables, vent tubes and exhaust. For the exhaust you can either install a turndown or reroute the exhaust under the axle. 21. Ride height air pressure should be around 75-80 psi, with about 3-4 clicks in the shocks.
