i was wondering is there a proper way to get them off with out destroying the bushings. i helped install a roush stage 1 suspension on a ZX3 and it was a pain to get them off and we destroyed the bushings inside which caused the tires to wear out quickly.

i need to know if i have to buy new lower control arms so i can have every thing ready.

maybe time to buy svt lca's with new bushings.

but since you only need to remove 1 bolt per side, head up the nut and only the nut.

I can't remember if the nut is welded to the arm. but either way

after heating up the nut hold said nut in place and remove bolt.

if bolt continues to freeze after being unthreaded tap it out with a punch careful not to damage threads of nut
