I'm refurbishing the vehicle listed above and now I'm replacing the lower control arms. I'm putting on new motor mounts while everything is apart too. I really like y'alls videos, very detailed and easy to follow. Wish y'all could do a video on control arm replacement. What would be the steps to do this job? Any advice or tips? I'm doing this in my driveway. Where would I place wood blocks to raise the engine to remove the mounts?
Thanks,
Ron

Hello,

See below for the lower control arm replacement procedure. It has all the torque specifications as well.

You should be able to lift the vehicle using the factory recommended lifting spot under the vehicle, below the front door on the frame.

Here is a helpful guide on best practices on lifting up the vehicle:

Let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.
