  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the front wheel.
  2. Remove the cotter pin and the upper control arm-to-steering knuckle nut.
  3. Using a suitable ball joint removal tool, separate the upper control arm from the steering knuckle.
  4. Remove the upper control arm-to-chassis nuts, washers and the upper control arm from the vehicle.
  5. To remove the bushings, remove the anchor bolts from the control arm and press the bushings out of the housing.
To install:
