Has anyone installed the 1.5" Vancompass lift spacers themselves? I am really failing at getting the lower ball joint to line up and fit back into the lower control arm. I am using a spring compressor, pulling the lower control arm down as far as I can and using a floor jack to raise the knuckle. But as I raise the knuckle with the floor jack, the angle between the ball joint and lower control arm hole just doesn't allow me to align the ball joint correctly. I hope this isn't something I have to declare failure and have the new van towed to a shop with a lift. Please help with any suggestions you may have. I'm a long time mechanic and a lift and a helper would have made this possible. On my gravel driveway?? maybe not.

You will need two people, it takes a lot of weight and a cheater bar to line it up properly. You may also need to loosen the axle nut to get things lined up initially, there isn’t enough clearance/tolerance to maneuver the ball joint stud into place. If you can take a picture of where you are at in the process I can possibly add some more tips.

Any idea what size tires you can fit with the lift?
If you are just doing the front leveling kit I wouldn’t go up a tire size unless you want to do some trimming.

Finally got it installed. Thanks to my neighbor, Kelly, he whipped it into shape. Definitely a two person job.

Here is the final result. Drives real nice and I still need to get the toe set. Drives just like stock.
