Upper A-Arm

Upper A-Arm

Three days of CRC, Coke and NITRIC ACID!
Heavy hitting finally removed the pivot bolt.......
Lucky I have a new one.

I found a SawzAll along side the bushing sleeves worked best to remove the A-arm, then a bit of applied heat from a torch and a drift helped out with a small sledgehammer was what it took to get the remaining bolt pieces out of the old bushings

Did I forget to say "applied heat"?? LOTS of HEAT
It was the hitting and boiling Nitric Acid that did the job .... :)
