Hi,

Does anyone know how one can tighten to spec the pivot bolt on Upper Control Arm when vehicle is on the ground? Seems a bit hard to get at it.

Regards,
Peter

Drive it up on some ramps? Or, measure the height of the lower control arm from the ground, then use a second jack to raise the control arm (after the wheel is removed) to duplicate the upper control arm position.
