Ezee-Lift installs in just 20 minutes!
Follow these 4 steps and you will be all set.
Once unpacked, your Ezee-Lift should look like this photo. There are four main components, all preassembled: a long, tubular spring housing; a pulley block with the Ezee-Lift logo; a cable anchor (with a U-bolt); and a red Lock-Link for securing the bracket when removing the spare tire.
Attach the spring housing to the frame member under the left, rear quarter of the van. Use the supplied bolts, as shown in this photo.
On some older model RTs (pre-2002), it may be necessary to drill two 1/2" holes in the frame member. If so, a drill template is included with the Ezee-Lift kit. This photo shows how to place the drill template on the vehicle.
Attach the pulley block to the vehicle by removing the old pivot bolt and replacing it with the new, longer pivot bolt included with the Ezee-Lift kit. (The pivot bolt runs through the lower pulley.) Leave the existing lock pin in place to support the spare wheel assembly during this step (as shown in the photo).
Attach the cable anchor to the spare wheel support post as shown in this photo. All the necessary hardware is included. Finally, tighten the adjusting nut on the forward end of the spring housing. This places some tension on the spring to prevent it from rattling while driving.
Anytime you remove the spare wheel (for changing a flat, etc.) the red Lock-Link MUST be installed as shown in this photo prior to removing the wheel! Failure to do so will cause the wheel support post to fly up suddenly with the potential for serious injury.
