Hey, It's me again. Can't seem to find a tutorial video (vehicle specific) showing what I need to do in changing these boomerang shaped rear upper control arms. Can you give me any ideas as to how extensive it is?
Do you

Unfortunately we don't have a video for this specific vehicle but here are the instructions from the manual. Hopefully this gives you the detail that you need.

Please let us know if you need other info and we can dig deeper. Thanks

Okay, thanks. I'm assuming I don't need to worry about any alignment issues?

Sorry. I meant to state that. You do need an alignment after this. The rear has adjustable control arms so step 8 says to perform an alignment.

Sorry. I know how you feel. Unfortunately any time we mess with a suspension component that is not on a solid axle it most always needs an alignment.
