And on that same night I hit this....



Which turned into this....








So heres the start of a little write up on how to replace a broken control arm mount.

First unbolt the LCA


Pull the bolt out and push the control arm down and out of the way.


Then get out your trusty Harbor Freight angle grinder.


Cut the mangled mount off.


You're left with this.



More to come when the mounts come in.

No, thats what sucks about it.

I shifted and the change in torque from that made it fishtail out and hit the curb.

Well, did a little wheelin this weekend. I wouldve gotten more pics but I was sick as a dog so I only got a couple. No damages, just a lot of mud.
