Hope you didn't bend the a-arms. The shop manual shows a special tool to remove and install the shaft. You don't have to take the shaft out to replace bushings, but when you reinstall, be sure to put in correctly. There is a "front" and "rear" to the shaft. I took mine to a front-end shop to have bushings installed.:anim_25: Thanks Pops....I'm a slow typer.
Farm Boy, Did use 3 spacers on lower control arm when removing bushing, middle spacer measured 12 and 1/16 and was a piece of angle iron. Was it long enough? How wide are the end spacers suppose to be? Wanted to remove control shafts so I could paint/possible powder coat arms separately. Thanks
