    UMI 3 pt install question

    I recieved my UMI 3pts today and before I start I want to get some clarification on the install. I have access to a drive on lift will I still need to support the rear of the car with jack stands? Or can I just stabilize the rear axle and disconnect the lower control arm? any other hints or ideas will be greatly appreciated.

    Drive on lift makes it real easy -- no jack stands required. Make sure you only do one side at a time, meaning do not unbolt both LCA's at the same time.

    that was what I was thinking but the directions seemed to imply the need for the jackstands still. I will take a strap to hold the axle in place also. And yes one side at a time. I could just imagine explaining that one to the auto hobby shop guys. Uhh well there I was and.....
