Step 1. Lift the car on a two post lift and raise it.
Step 2. Loosen the following bolts/nuts:
---Inner Control Arm Bushing
---Inner Radius Rod
---Trailing Arm Bushings (both ends)
---Toe Rod Bushings (both ends)
---Lower Control Arm Bushings (Inner)
---Upper Control Arm Bushings (Rearward)
---Lower Strut Bushings
Lower the car and drive it around the parking lot SLOWLY and on to the alignment lift.
With the weight of the car on the wheels tighten all of the nuts/bolts to spec.
Align the car at the new ride height.
Front and Rear Bolt Torque Values
NOTE: Torque specifications that read XX torque value and XX degrees are usually TTY and require replacement of the bolt, nut or both. If replacement parts are not available from GM the minimum acceptable torque will be those values stated along with a liberal application of a thread locker i.e. LocTite.
