Hey all, Iam going to replace my front lower control arm and was wondering what size tools i need to buy.

Front strut rod nuts 30mm wrench I know that
I need the ball joint nut size, the lower shock bolt sizes, and the camber bolt sizes. Since Iam not a mechanic anymore I sold all my tools so i have to ask this stupid question to go buy some. FYI dont do this youll be wishing you still had them:( Thanks

im pretty sure its a 24mm nut at the ball joint. camber nut i believe is 21mm. shock bolt, not sure. i want to say its an odd number size. if there's a harbor freight near you, then get a set of these:

i used a 30mm axle socket and a breaker bar for the front strut rod nuts. the flat spot on the strut rod takes a 19mm wrench.
