This is the P3 chassis. Nothing on YouTube. I got the old arm out but having major difficulty getting the new one in.
do I have to remove the entire hub? I have not yet. I got the old one out by just jacking up the knuckle a bit and the old arm slipped right out.
I only have one side on jack stand.
Do you
have the same problem?
