Installing IRO's rear a arm..

Has anyone installed this arm? My 03 has 4" IRO springs with stock arms and I've had a clunk for awhile now. Pretty sure its not shocks and the rear a arm looks original so (sorta against my better judgement) I ordered the IRO rear adjustable a arm. Its nice and beefy, not a piece of paper with it. Instructions, diagram nothing, really pretty shitty of a company not to include anything with a $300 part. Anyways, removal of my old arm was really easy, I installed the IRO arm with the two side bushing bolts first. Now trying to pull the joint end down into the cup is pretty difficult. I was trying to use rachet straps but I didn't have much luck, plus all that seems to do is put the side bushings at extreme angles. I don't know what I'm gaining really. At rest, the joint sits about 3-4" from where the bolt hole is on the bracket. This is all with the Jeep sitting on the ground. Am I missing something? Is this arm a retarded design? I'm leaving for Colorado with the rig in less than a month so I need to get this and a bunch of other things buttoned up. Thanks for any tips.

Re: Installing IRO's rear a arm..

You will find that most of the aftermarket offroad manufacturers either fail to give any instructions whatsoever or the instructions they do give are generic and not always pertaining to the actual vehicle you are working on. I think IRO has downloadable instructions for most of their parts on the website. From what I have seen, they are one of the better companies as far as providing instructions. Find the part on their site, click on the product page and scroll down for a link to the instructions. Good luck!
