Default hey guys i need help !

hey guys i have an 01 cherokee an im installing a mrough county 6.5 on it. the back lift is finished an the front is almost done, but i am stuck on one thing. i cant line up the new lower control arms, the upper control arms are on an the springs are in but i cant line up the lower control arms. it looks like the diff is tilted foward but i cant pull it back because of the tension from the springs. anybody have any suggestions or an easy way to fix this?

I answered you in the other thread but...

Go buy the drop brackets that are supposed to go with this kit...

They'll bolt right up after that.

You're having issues because the control arm angles are so crazy.

But if you're going to install it that way anyways.

Get really long pry bar and cram it somewhere and pry it into place.

I don't know of any place that sells them off the shelf.

You'll be glad you have the brackets. I promise.
