LOWER CONTROL ARM

2001 Honda Civic • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 145,000 miles

Do you have any tips on trying to separate the front lower control arm from the strut assembly?
It is being very stubborn.

The lower arm is attached to the spindle and the wishbone. The long bolt sometimes seizes and either needs heat to release it or need to be cut off and replaced.
