Control arms

Does anybody have any good tips on how to get the control arm bolts out? I bent an axle and am now changing rears

Muscle, big socket set, and a wrench..

Spray some PB blaster an hour or so before, sometimes they rust up good and tight

+1 for PB blaster! Don't be afraid to load it up with PB, it's going to make things much easier for you. Aside from that, just use the largest ratchet you can fit in there and have at it.

Good luck!

Get a adjustable wrench, put it around the rubber grommet and squeeze. Now put the socket on the nut and turn.

Thanks for the advice guys. I ended up just cutting off the bolts. I'm gonna try and save the bushings, can't exactly afford some. Damn being 17 with a mustang isn't so much fun when it's expensive
