Default what size is the upper control arm bolt?

I don't have anything that big, and need to go buy some tools apparently.

Thanks.

Your tool is too small?

I THINK it is a 17mm.

Whatever it is, it's larger than 19mm, which is the biggest metric open-end wrench I have. The next Imperial size up is a perfect fit- can't remember if it's 7/8" or 15/16"

then it's probably a 21, as my dad's impact set ends at 21, which is what I used to remove it.
