I am going to try to replace my lower control arms as I have noticed that the plastic boot that protects the balljoint is torn. This seems to be a big job, but I think that I can do it myself. I am hoping that some one can give me some tips/advise on where to start. I am unsure on what tools that I will need. Will I have to compress the coil spring? How do I remove the strut rod from the lower control arm as it looks like it is pressed in? Basically what I need is a list of tools and parts needed to do job correctly and safely. Thanks for any input provided!
