Question about Cars & Trucks
The oil is milky looking. I replaced the filter and replaced the oil. With the filter off and no oil and tractor not running I was able to lower the lift arms, However when I started it back up the lift arm went up and will not lower what is my problem
THAT MY FRIEND IS A STICKY VALVE. I had it with a crane carrier. Dirty oil or contaminated oil causes it, but you need to find the cause for water mixing with the oil resulting milkiness. maybe she was standing out in the rain with filler cap open?

If you torn the ball joint out, you very well could have more damage.
If you plan on doing the work yourself, I would put the car up on stands, and take the front wheel off, and do a through examination of the whole assembly.
Once you have a complete assesement of all of the damage you can go to your local parts house and get the parts.
If you have to replace the lower arm, you will need probably need some specialized tools (like a spring compressor).
After you're done changing parts, you will need to get a front end alignment.

I just did this job on my 98 regal, and I own the service manuals also. The lower control arm bushing that usually goes, is the front one. The rear one doesn't usually go, it is horizontally mounted. The front one for some reason is vertical. The control arm must be removed, and put in a vise. The front bushings outer metal sleeve, must be driven out with a chisel. It comes out easily. The new bushing can be tapped in with a hammer. Hope this helps!

You can replace them seperately,but they need pressed out and in. Other methods of removing and installing likely will damage control arm.

Just pry them off. Make sure the tab is out the whole way. Sometimes they can be tough to get off. Spray with wd40 it should aid in getting it loose. You could even tap it a few times with a rubber mallet or a light hammer, just be careful. Good luck if this helps let me know.
