I got new tubular upper (adjustable) and lower rear control arms, and new springs.

Should I leave the springs out then put them in once the control arms are in? i am having one heck of a time getting everything to line up with the springs in.

it looks like i will be putting a 12 bolt in with in the next few months but i needed to put the new springs in now, because the guy who had the car before me torched the springs which caused all sorts of suspension problems.

any and all tips and pointers are appreciated.

thanks

Once I got one of the upper control arms bolted in, everything else went very smoothly......except, now the drive shaft will NOT bolt back up to the rearend. It seems as though the drive shaft is too long.

any suggestions?
