Here at GNT,,, we have been asked a few time,,,, " Do you need the factory steels" and well the answer is yes. and here is a how to....


First remove your factory mounts. they will probably look like this..........

i started by warming up the steel a little bit to soften it,,,, nothing crazy just yet,,,, lol
Posted Image


now i took a shoe knife and sliced off the rubber...
Posted Image

and it comes out like this.....
Posted Image


now for the part that has the bushings in it. i warmed it up and used some pliers. twist it till it becomes free.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Then heat up and slice like before. note this steel has a taper to it. and note the direction. it can also not be used if you choose not to use it.... its all a personal choice. but for here..... were gonna use it.
Posted Image

now, lets pour on the heat a little,,,, burn the rubber off,,,,note,,,there hot.... lol.. ask me how i know.

Now,,, let them cool. and off to the blast cabinet. or if you dont have one you can sand or scrape the residue off.
Posted Image

and they kinda come out like this. i needed to blast a bit more but good enough for demonstration.
Posted Image

now, for some self etching primer,,,
Posted Image
Posted Image

and paint,,,,,,,,,,
Posted Image



now there dry enough to handle,, re assemble.

And thats how its done. re install back in your car. and go for a spirited,,non clunking ride.

Nevermind I figured it out....I was right.    Which way do they go in?  I didn't pay attention when I pulled them off.  To me it seems like the side with the bumps face down between the frame and torque tube then the flat on top for the nuts to rest on or is it the opposite?  I can't post pictures...no site to host them.
