front lower control arm

Post by thatfnthing on Sat Mar 30, 2013 1:40 pm

Trying to pull off the right lower control arm, and the rear bolt came out easily, but the front seems to be incredibly stuck. The bolt will turn if I use a cheater bar on my socket wrench, but just barely. I thought if I could get it to back out a little, the threads would engage and I could actually unscrew it, so I am also trying to press it out from behind with a C-clamp at the same time, but it's actually starting to bend the clamp.

Anybody run into this? If so, what did you do? I could use some suggestions, thanks!

Sounds like your bolt is rusted inside the bushing sleeve. Hard to get in there but I'd try a good size hammer. Worst case you can use a sawzall and and cut along the sides of the bushing. Pain, but will work. Hammer is the best bet.

Thanks, Joe. Sawzall did it.
