Went off roading today and managed to bend the driver-side trailing arm into a "U" shape. I was curious on others experiences in replacing the trailing arms. It looks to be a very straight forward fix but we all know how those plans go.
It's been a few years since pulling mine to replace bushings, if I misinform or forget a step, hopefully some else will chime in.....jack up rig on frame (to get weight off of arm), I think I had to remove the tie rod to get arm out easier (replaced tie rod ends anyway, so I didn't really try that hard to get the arm out). If you're in no true hurry, purchase the new fastens too, they can be a pain to get out. I went OEM rubber bushings.....purchased a $200 USD bench top press too, didn't want to run everywhere to find a shop to do the pressing for me. And having a 96 D1 that needs full suspension renewal, the press has paid for itself. Cheers,
