Replace C-channel Quigley Torque arms with round

Hello All,
I just received my new torque arms from Quigley and I'm looking to tackle the project during the quarantine.
Are there any issues that I need to look out for? Any special tricks to make it easier? What would you torque the bolts to? Any grease? Or just unbolt the old and bolt the new?
Thanks in advance.
Matt

It is a tight fit I can tell you that. I usually have a jack on hand to cycle the shock and spring so I can get the bolts in the holes.

Taking off the suspension probably helps.

I'd give Quigley a call and get their recommendations specific to your application. They told me both specifications for torque and how to position the suspension prior to final tightening. I'm guessing you're talking about replacing the control arms and not torque arms? Anyway, the folks at Quigley are super easy to deal with (as long as they are still open for business)...

Are the new ones bushings or do they have an articulating end on either end? Also, I pulled the broken arm out of mine, but the end that is mounted to the axle is stuck...seems the bolt was installed before the steering knuckle was welded on? Looks like I have to cut it off to get it out...tried a pry bar and it didn't budge, am i missing something simple here?

ok, in case anyone else has this issue, i got the bolt out by hammering the broken bushing into the bracket at an angle so the bolt would clear the axle. Quigley arms are bushings on both ends.
