    Hey everyone, got my SS UP n running but have noticed the front upper arm pins move forward. How do I stop this?

    Thanks,

    Ash

    A simple fix is to use a nylon zip tie around the bumper supports to keep them from flexing and letting the pins slide forward

    I prefer the stock plastic bumper and supports so I get a little give instead of a solid type, besides the alloy ones bend and stay bent

    could invest in a swaybar set that come with the plate to keep those pins from sliding out and can keep your high$ skid that way. do not necessarily have to install the swaybars

    That's a cool idea.

    Thanks for the heads up.
