I'm getting ready to replace my rear lateral link, upper and lower control are the next few days. Its looks like less of a pain than my front lower control arm. Is there any specific order to follow? any tips? specific wrench type or length?

Thanks

Thanks. I got the upper and lower replaced relatively easy. Far better experience than when i did the front. Minor back pain lol The garage can do the lateral links. 馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ

I haven't had to do anything with my rear suspension yet, other than replacing the sway bar bushings. I have done both front lower control arms though... only took me about 15 minutes each. I was very surprised how easy those were.

Just watch for the bolt that is welded to the car for the upper ones鈥..looks like a nut but is part of sub frame or something - I can confirm no amount of leverage will undo it :eek::unsure:

Otherwise easy job
