Re: wiper arms

Lift the arm up as high as it will go. You have to hold it in that position while prying the bottom off its pivot. Seems like you need three hands to do it but it will come off with some coaxing.

Warning: they may be stuck so it may require some serious prying or coaxing. I use a towel under a claw hammer or pry bar and ease it up. Try not to damage the paint.

Re: wiper arms

There is a removal tool that works pretty well. Most "Help" sections in auto parts stores have them and you will not skin up your cowl using it.

Talking Re: wiper arms

This is the tool that makes removal a lot easier.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.
