Prowler A-Arm Kit Instructions

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  When you place your A-Arm covers on there is a little maneuvering room.  Pull each of the four covers as far forward (i.e.. towards the front grill of the car).  In general you want to keep all sides of the covers as close to the body of the car as possible and as far away from the

wheels and tires as possible.  This will prevent any possibility of the wheels scraping the covers when they are turned to their extreme right or left.
You will end up with about a 1/8 inch or so gap under the front of each arm cover.  The back of each cover will be flush against the cars stock A-Arm.

 

1.      Once the A-Arms are siliconed down they will be bonded to prevent any movement or possible detachment. To Bond simply apply a bead of silicone (included) along the factory arm and carefully position new cover.
 
You must first hook the front roll and work the cover to the rear and snap over the rear edge. This may or may not require some force! You may need to work it on using a small putty knife. Once the piece has been snapped onto the A-Arm work the piece so that it rests closest to the wheel and allow silicone to set for at least 1 hour. Remove protective liner.

 

2.      The stainless tie rod sleeve cover is designed to mount between the rubber boot and the tie rod head. You will notice a long slit in the stainless tube cover, position this slit so that it spreads over the narrowest section of the tie rod and force it over and onto the length of area between the tie rod head and tie rod boot. Rotate the sleeve so that the slit faces up. Apply a thick bead of silicone into the slit so that it comes in contact with the tie rod. Rotate the sleeve so that the slit faces down; allow the silicone to set for at least 1 hour. Remove the protective liner.

 

3.      You have been provided with two chrome laminating strips. With the vertical strut bar thoroughly cleaned remove the liner completely from one of the strips and place it in the center from side to side and top to bottom of both the strip and the strut bar. Run your finger along the length massaging the laminate up and down as you force it around to the back of the strut bar. Allow one side to go to the back and then overlap with the other side. Press firmly to seal and set.  Ensure the seam is underneath the bar.   Upper A-Arm Covers: These covers attach exactly like the lower A-Arm Covers in step 2, simply apply the silicone bead and snap into position. Force the A-Arm Cover closest to the wheel and allow to set before removing the protective liner.

5.      IMPORTANT:  Once you have mounted the A-Arms have a partner get into your Prowler and rotate the steering wheel to its far right and far left position while you watch to make sure you have proper clearance during tight turns.  Ensure the wheels are not hitting any part of the A-Arm assembly.  Adjust as necessary.      See diagram at the top of Page 3.
