How do I remove the lower control arm and torsion bar? help!
I'm trying to replace the upper and lower control arms drivers side on my 1999 dodge durango 4x4 and i've got to the point where I have the hub with caliper assembly completely removed from the car, and removed the upper control arm and shock already. now comes the part I need help with. I've never had a vehicle with a torsion bar instead of springs so when it comes to removing the lower control arm I am not sure how to relieve the pressure off everything so I don't have a surprise.
I backed out the long bolt at the rear side of the torsion bar to the point where it almost comes out, and not sure if the bar still has pressure on the control arm or not. it seemed to have rotated as I backed the long bolt out.
and when looking at removing the front control arm bolt to frame mount it looks like the sway bar is in the way and you have to remove the sway bar in order to remove the bolt. is this the case? and what steps should I take from this point to get the lower control arm out?
