If you are talking about the lower trailing arms, you just un bolt them with the fj on the ground and then bolt the new ones in. You may need to rock the FJ back and forth to get the bolts back in to the new trailing arms. Do only one side at a time and use lock tite and torque them to 96 ft lbs.

I never did it on the ground before, that sounds easier.
The pressure of the FJ on the ground keeps the rear end from twisting out of square. Rocking it will help align the bolt hole. Doing one side at a time also helps with alignment.

MAKE SURE TO USE LOCKTITE AND TORQUE TO 96 FT LBS. I tell you this because I did not use locktite and the nuts worked loose, after locktite and re torque...All is well.
