What's up fellas, I have a complete Burkhart front suspension setup coming with k member , upper, lower a arms, manual rack ....etc.....anyways, Chuck told me that the lower a arms dont have the normal lower shock mounts that the t mounts on the shocks bolt to,he told me to pull the t mount out of the shock and install a bearing.....anyone have to do this, what type of bearing do I need, hope there isn't much to it.

The bearing mount on the front lower is far superior to a bushing and the "t-bar" type lower mount that the stock configuration uses. Afco, Strange, and QA1 shock bodies have the bore setup for the bearing if you already have a shock with the bushing or t-bar mount, so all you have to do is remove the bushing or wrong bearing and switch over to the bearing setup. The bearing is retained with snap rings so it is a easy install, but there is a light press fit.

The bearing sizes are different from one manufacturer to another so you need to order the correct parts from the manufacturer of that particular shock. MWC keeps all the right parts in stock to do this conversion.
