It would be interesting to see if you could just flip the a-arms and rebolt the shocks. But I'm thinking then the spindles wouldn't line up with them...

No, looked at that, really don't think they would line up.

I finally had time to try and swap or flip the A arm, turns out it won't work with this lift kit or how the previous owner modified something. After trying to reinstall them the way the cart comes the arm does not line up at all with the top mount of the spindle. The whole front end must be moved up a couple inches or something. Not sure what they are supposed to look like so I can't compare. I took a couple pics to see if you guys notice anything different.

This is how off it would be:




The shock tower lines up with the top mount of the arm bracket and if the top shock was in between the shock tower like its supposed to be there's no way the bottom the the shock would line up:



And this is where the top mount lines up with the frame. Is it forward a bit or normal?



Thanks

Can you take a few pics of the underside of the lift where it bolts to the frame?

Sorry, its hard to get a good angle to see where everything bolts on. Here's a few more pics:




From this angle the black top bracket from the kit is definately ahead of the aluminum plate but not sure if that is normal



Don't see any extra holes drilled

Ok, everything looks fine. Usually though, A-Arm kits come with new upper A-Arms, yours are stock

Ya, Probably a cheap kit that requires to use the stock arms reversed and shocks to be mounted on the inside like they are.

Thanks again

Looking at the pictures it looks like the aluminum billet plate is backwards. Would it not align if you turn it around?
