Unhappy Install lowering link - '01 F4i - April 26, 2007, 06:12 PM

I've Googled and found some said installing the LLink is suppose to be easy. I have a back stand but do not have a place to hang the back. Some people have used the back stand to lift the tire off the ground then used a jack to raise and remove the shock. The problem is I do not see where I'm suppose to put the jack to raise the shock? Would a car jack do? If so, place it on the ground then jack it up... where?

Any help is appreciated...

I'm tip-toe'ing and want to lower my F4i. The problem is all the LLink only goes 1" or 3" and it's recommended to not lower more than 2". So, would 1" make any difference? Would it take me from tip-toe to the ball of me feet?

There are a few ways to do it....

Do you have solid peg rearsets on it? If so, put jack stands under there.

Do you have an iron rod? Put it through the swingarm pivot hole, repeat jackstand usage.

Have someone help you.... its an easier two man job.
