What is the easiest and best way to remove the lower control arm to K-frame bolts on an AU? Apart from cutting them off that is. Would a bit of heat help? They are always ridiculously tight and not necessarily the easiest to swing off.

Cheers


When I did mine Ash, I used an extra deep Impact socket and some WD40. The Front one you will need to loosen the front cross-member to get at them. It's not too hard but a PIA :D

I must have been lucky Ash, mine were not so hard to remove. I bought a can of WD40 today at SuperCheap for $3.47, 400g :D

One other thing that MIGHT work, Olive oil or Fishy oil?

Ash, do they HAVE a parts place where you live? or just horse and Buggy stable :D :twisted:

If youve got one of those butane blow torches it makes it alot easier.
