It can be a bit of a challenge to remove the old and install the new but, not bad. Make sure to "load" the suspension before torqueing all the bolts and I'd recommend getting an alignment afterwards. In my case, the alignment was spot on after installing the part and didn't need adjusting but, it's not worth the risk of ruining your tires.

                      • Q:

                        Hello,
                        I am trying to determine if there is any other hardware that is traditionally replaced when replacing the control arm.
                        Are there any bushings or other components related to this that are not initially sold included with the item?
                        If they are separate, or are available separately (just in case) is there a SKU or Item Number available for those components?
