From the fenderwell you can undo a bolt with an 8 or 10mm hex head and that will free up the hardline enough.
Take out the battery tray to get more access to the bolts for the control arm. Use a swivel. Extensions and a swivel for the rear bolt. Its kinda tricky but not that bad once you get it going.

Driver’s upper control arm r and r
So I’m replacing the upper ball joint on the ‘02 4x4 without antilock brakes. How is this task done?? I broke down and watched a YouTube video but mine is obviously different. The front bolt won’t come out since the hard brake line is in the way. I was able to move the top line enough to get the bolt loose but to remove it it looks like I’d have to disconnect the brake line to move it enough to sneak the bolt out. I can’t believe you’d have to do that but I see no other option.
How does the rear bolt come loose as well. The steering shaft is in the way so I can’t get a socket on it even. There’s not much room for a wrench to turn either. Above it is the master cylinder and all the hard brake lines to that so a long wrench or a cheater bar won’t work.
How do I do this?? From the videos I watched the ‘02 looks different.
