Disconnect stabilizer bar and shock. Remove Lower ball joint. Remove the two bolts that hold the lower suspension arm to the frame. A lot of times the later model trucks these bolts are completely seized requiring them to be cut and you will need to special order the bolt and bushings from the dealer.

How do I replace the upper Control arms on My 1979 chevy 1/2 ton pickup. I saw a replacement control arm that has the bushings and ball joints already installed. I'm trying to save the high labor cost that...

Since the new arm comes with the bushings, there is no reason to get the tool to install them. Upper arms are relatively easy to install...just a bolt out, bolt in operation as the springs aren't involved. Support the suspension under the lower control arm to take any tension off the upper arm.

What is the torque trquirement for the 1975 chevy 1/2 ton SB truck. there are 6 bolts on each side.what is the torque setting for the upper and lower control arms on sam truck?

For the upper:

  1. Installation is the reverse of removal. Before tightening the nuts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm) for 1/2 ton trucks, or 105 ft. lbs. (142 Nm) for 3/4 and 1 ton models. Have the front alignment checked, and adjusted.

For the lower:

Tighten the U–bolts to 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm) for 1970–75 1/2 ton trucks, to 110 ft. lbs. (149 Nm) for 3/4 and 1 ton models; all other trucks tighten to 85 ft. lbs. (115 Nm). Have the front suspension alignment checked.

Trying to replace upper control arm bushings on 1990 toyota pickup 2wd is there a surten whey to take the old ones out or mien are just stuck

What part is stuck?
Do you mean the inner metal sleeve is stuck to the bold so that you can't get the bolt out?
Of do you mean the bolts are out and the arm is out, but you don't have a press to push the bushing out?

When sleeves get rusted on, the solution I use is to cut the bolt off on both sides. A power sawzall or cutting torch works fine. It does not matter if you burn out the rubber since you are going to replace it anyway.

If the bushing itself is the problem, then you could just take the arm to a shop with a press, you could run a long threaded rod through, with a pipe or large socket to act as receptical and a large washer on the pushing side. Or you could burn out the rubber and chisel out the steel outer sleeve, if there is one. Or you could buy a press for $60 at Harbor Freight, or you could make a press. After all, you have a 2 ton truck chassis you could lower on it.

If you mean the bolts are out but the arms is not coming out easily, that is probably just the fact the rubber is swollen, and you need to lever it out with a pry bar.

Give us more detail.

Bolts for upper control arm assy on 1987 DODGE RAM PICK UP

Don't remember the size but they are likely grade 8 bolts not general hardware store stuff. See if you can get them from a junkyard (they usually discard them or cut off with a torch when removing control arm.
