I bought a Mopar 2” lift yesterday and installed it last night. The only problem I ran into is the lower control arm bolt at the axel. I was able to get the drivers side bolts in but I can’t get the hole to line up and get the bolt through on the passenger side. Any tips on how to get the hole to line up?

A lot of times you can use a common ratchet strap to pull the axle one way or another to get the hole to line up.

I ended up doing that and using two jacks, one on each end of the axle. After about 20 minutes I was able to get the bolt through. The other side wasn't a problem because the shocks were off as well as both sway bar end links. That made moving the axle and getting the LCA to line up.

use a jack to lift the axle or rachet straps.

Glad you were able to get it back in, this info will definitely help out other forum members.
Probably too soon to tell, but how is the ride compared to stock?
