View Full Version : lower control arm
02-17-2004, 10:29 PM
I,m trying to remove the lower control arm but i can't get the aft bolt out. I've tried beating it out but that does'nt seem to be working. Any ideas on how to get this out with out tearing up the bolt and sleeve that I have to use again? I'm replacing the bushings with some poly ones. The bolt I'm talking about is the one that is straight up and down not the one that is horizonal.

The lower control arm should just have two horizontal bolts and it should come off. Where is there a straight up and down bolt on it?

It's the one toward the back of the car. lower a arm assembly. It connects to the frame.

Well I might not be on the same page so let me know if your talking about the front lower control arm or the back lower control arms. I am referring to the rear lower control arms.

Ok I see your other post so its the front A-arm lower portion. I will look around and see if I can find something about it.

Problem solved. Saws-all. I cut them off and ordered new bolts and nuts and made my own sleeves for inside the bushings.
