Offroad Trailblazers and Envoys

Why flip upper control arms?

Trailblazer and Envoy related, but not off-road related...

You do not have to cut. I just did Tsmiths a couple weeks ago and a lil bending of the metal and you can do it with a regular box wrench
I hate to advocate weird chemicals, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone...but
they've always worked for me.

Thanks for the responses. I have the Mark MC lift with 2.5" in the front. I'm not having issues with torn BJ boots but I am replacing all the suspension and came across this post and figured I'd ask if its worth it for me. I'm not an off-roader and my TB is my daily driver.

I would have prolly cut mine as well if I did not have a body lift, but you don't have to and some get scared by cutting ;)
