UUC GEN II FCAB Install Problem


Does anyone have experience installing the new UUC GEN II FCAB on 05' ZHP sedan!?

I tried installing the UUC FCAB this weekend and no matter how hard I push I could not align the FCAB to the mounting holes.

Just wondering if anyone had the same issue!??

I was able to get the FCAB onto the arm but it just doesn't go in far enough... I tried dish soap and grease but since the bushing is hard polyurethane it would not expand and it's getting stuck where the arm expands... It's only off like 3/8"... =(

Take some pix. I have both the UUC GEN2 and GEN1 so I can definitely help
