Question about 1992 Ford Thunderbird
Trying to remove the upper control arms on a 92 ford thunderbird. There are two bolts at the top of the arm that go through the bushings. These bolts have metal flags/tabs on them that need to be cut off. Can not figure out how to cut them off...

The torgue spec for the upper control and ball joints is40 to 45 ft lbs they have castle nuts and cotter pins its not that critical the bushing are rubber mounts there much less user your best judgement not to over compress the rubber

check out you ford specialist wreckers or junk yards. Some fords use the same parts in different cars so when you are looking check other models for a similar bar.
