    not sure on the adjustments because I bought the non-adjustable type. I just used marine grade lube on mine and have had zero issues. Just lube them and make sure you torque them down enough, if not they'll pop on launches and over bumps. Ask me how I know that. Torque spec is 87 ft/lb's

    do your LCA's have a zerk fitting ( little nipples you use to put grease in) on each end? Sounds like they do from your first post. Just get a grease gun ( cheap at any parts store or wal-mart) and buy some marine grade grease and give 2-3 pumps in each fitting.

    If you have the stock ones on now and don't have any problems, just measure the holes center to center - then adjust to the same setting. Also make sure you can get to the grease fittings after they're installed.

    start off by measuring the stock ones from center to center as suggested. install them. measure from fenderwell to tire on the front and rear side. this will give you an idea if the rear is centered in the wheel well. then, when you go and get an alignment, they can make the final adjustments to correct the thrust angle of the rear end. thrust angle is the rear end being turned left/right from the centerline of the vehicle. they can now correct this to zero.
