Front Driver's Control Arm...ish.


 

This is me, installing at least one set of front control arms on the Zero. Front driver’s side is mounted and loosely bolted into place with the upright. Pretty straight forward but there were a couple of small issues worth noting.

  • The powder coating on the chassis is thick and needs to be cleaned out of the bracket through holes for the bolts to slide through cleanly. I used a 25/64” drill bit. I’m sure there are other ways.
  • The lower ball joint did not want to slip into its new lower control arm home without a fight,
  • A hole drilled in the lower arm for one of the ball-joint’s bolts is 10mm while the bolt is actually M12.
