best done with the weight on the vehicle remove the bolts going through the arm insulators and remove the arm. do one side at a time and try not to move the wheel. Lower trailing arms may have an washer on the bolts that is off set for alignment purposes so be careful as to where the washers are sitting or you will need a rear wheel alignment when finished.

Raise the front of the vehicle and support it by the frame with jack stands. Remove the front wheels using the air gun and a socket.
Place the floor jack under the
lower control arm as close to the ball joint as possible. Raise the jack
until it begins to lift the control arm. Make sure that the floor jack
is positioned where it cannot slip off the control arm.
Remove the cotter pin in the
upper control arm ball joint using the wire cutters. Remove the nut on
the bottom of the upper ball joint using a wrench. Separate the ball

spindle and the upper control arm and hit it with a hammer until it
comes loose from the spindle.
Remove the upper control arm by
removing the nuts on the engine side of the arm holding it to the frame.
Use a wrench for this, but as the bolts are loosened, keep the

to replace these on the side they were removed from for the alignment.
Lift the upper control arm off
and remove the upper ball joint using the ball joint installer kit. This

ball joint, which would be unusual.
Place the receiver over the
bottom of the ball joint and the smaller pusher cylinder on the topside.
Place the large C-clamp from the kit over the cylinders. Use the ½-inch
air gun and socket to push the ball joint out. Reverse the process to

There are three, we'll call them bars, that go to the rear spindle on your century. The one that goes forward toward the rear door of the car is called a trailing arm. The other two which goe towards the center of the car are called lateral arms, and there is a front and rear. The rear lateral arm is usually the one that gets bent. These three arms position the lower end of the strut/spindle assembly, and if one or more are bent, your rear wheel alignment will be out of whack, and your car will drive funny and you will wear out your tires.
Remove plastic cover at upper strut mount. Remove automatic ride actuator (if equipped). Remove 3 upper strut retaining nuts and collar plate from the mounting studs in engine compartment.

Spray area with WD 40 remove the nut from the ball joint. Strike the spindle with a hammer (single blow at a time) in the area were the tapered shaft of the ball joint goes through it and it should release it, then you can lower the A arm down slowly releasing the spring tension.
