Re: question on changing out control arm

That photo scares me. How could that even work? I can't imagine the ground being hard enough to support that as it is.

We were on a nice driveway and all surfaces were solid.

Re: question on changing out control arm

Thanks for everyone's help and suggestions. I helped forum member Mr. Detail with his car this saturday. We only got one side done because of the amount of time we were able to devote to the job but mostly everything went well. Before doing this job I had trouble visualizing why the control arm had ...

Re: question on changing out control arm

Raising on jack stand is first step to ensuring personal safety. That will definitely be done. I have jack stands I am comfortable with. My question about safety was about anything involved with the LCA job that might cause some unique experience over the same job on my s70. There seems to be the p...

Re: question on changing out control arm

It is easier and different on a 99 v70 to do than P2. If you work without a lift, it is better to remove the knuckle assembly to have more room. 1) Subframe 15mm screws are difficult to reach with a socket if you don't lower the subframe, transmission and engine in the way. Feasible with a 15mm com...

Re: question on changing out control arm

You can now proceed with safety, BUT still a lot can go wrong, be very careful. Thank you for the outline on the procedure. With regards to your last line (quoted above) what is the risk here? 1) risk to damaging parts? If so what parts (other than the CV boot which you mentioned) 2) risk to person...

question on changing out control arm

Hi folks, I am helping a fellow member swap out his control arms on a 2002 V70. I have done this job on my 99 s70 but I know the V70 is slightly different. I have a couple of questions I need clarified. 1) in some videos the steering knuckle is detached from the strut tower. I don't think this is re...
