Re: Control arm replacement

No, You can't do it with a socket from below the car if the ball joint is spinning . I use a ring spanner in 1/8th turns,ish as it is very confined and an Allen key/tool in the top.

Obviously the front wheel needs to come off too. Drop the front two bolts from the protection cover and th...

Which side?
I may have a 2.8 trailing arm if you want one.

The way to tell is to look at the carrier/hub section and look at the lower damper mount.
If it is 1.9 it will look considerably shorter than the other side,if that one is in fact 2.8.
