Removal of Lower and Upper Control Arm

 

By Edward Singleterry, Metropolitan Mailing List

 

What I have done in the past is spray the locking pins with a rust penetrant and let them "soak" for awhile, then to get the upper pins out I use a brass punch (or similar) of about 3/4 dia. so when you hit the pin it won't slip off---when the pins come away from the support area (when the lock tang sits in) I take a pair of channel-lock pliers and start turning them and working them out. The same goes for the lower but you don't necessarily need the brass punch as you can get to the bolts easier.
