i had to replace my lower control arm but it was the driver side, it took bout an hour, and was a ***** because there are two bolts that have to come off on the side opposite of the connection to the wheel side and one of the bolts was directly under the transmission, so i had to unbolt a few bolts from the frame and jack up the tranny to get the one bolt out, but the passenger side looks alot easier and would be quicker to do depending on the tools. is it the lower control arm? and how many bolt connectin is it, 2 or 4? let me know how it goes, i suggest if u know someone that is a mechanic, to let him help u, good luck

FYI once you get that bolt out of the arm under the transmission cut the end down a little bit and insert it from the bottom so next time it comes right out without having to jack the transmission up. You need to cut it so it doesn't hit the transmission when it's inserted upside down.

Looks like the "Old Forums" are currently down.
The old forums have been offline ever since the site was upgraded a couple of months ago.
