I am in the process of changing the driver side hub and cannot get the control arm to drop down out of the way so I can continue. The van has been making this crazy humming noise and serious vibrating to the brake and gas peddles when driving past 25mph. I first tried the braks, then the line, then the caliper, and nothing fixed it. So now I am trying the hub and wheel barring. I am lost and stuck with the van in the air. I have tried a pry bar and another solid steel bar. Im stuck. Please help!

Do you
have the same problem?

Replace the pads, rotors and the hub. The hub bolts on as an assembly and does not require removing the control arm
