    Post Replacing front suspension arm?

    Broke the front suspension arm today by landing on a jump wrong. I have the parts on the way from BuyTraxxas, but I have no clue on how to put the arm in. By the way, it was the top one.

    Top one is the easiest of the top/bottom to replace IMO. You remove the front bumper assembly by removing the top 3 screws on the front of the chassis. Then remove the front screw (there's only one in front, on the blue aluminum triangular plate)Then pull the pin (a couple inches long) out from the broken a-arm and then a-arm will pop/slide out. Hopefully that makes sense and works for ya!

    What he said^^^^^. He missed the ball end though. Just UN screw it and screw it back in. Count how many turns until you see threads so when
    You go back together you can get it fairly close for your wheel alignment

    Thank you Carbonrevo33 and 00teggygsr. My parts are on the way and this info will assist me greatly in fixing it. I am kinda bored because the Summit's the only thing I've been using for the last couple days.
