Ok went to autozone and got a 17mm and 14mm wrench, breaker bar, and some PB blaster. Already have a decent set of sockets, and a torque wrench. So anything else Ill need?

oh and I have a crappy flathead screwdriver that Ive already used to pound out stuff and a small hammer.

its the long bolt that holds the hub to the control arm, I can get the nut off but the bolt refuses to move.

those are a pain in the ***. use lots of lube and lots of force. Once it starts coming out, I'll pry on the head with a prybar while spinning it with an air impact.

Or just use the pax side bolt and tap the driver side bolt through with a BFH. Keep a jack under it to stop the control arm from dropping down and misaligning the holes. That's keep the bolt from pushing through.

But you got the nut off the one end (pictured), right? The bolt isn't threaded so put the nut back on til the end is flush with the threads, then bang the nutted end with a big ******* hammer a few times. The nut will keep the end from mushrooming but I can't imagine that bolt is so seized that you would need that much force.

Have you tried your breaker bar on the bolt's head? How about while using a cheater pipe?

Were you able to get the top bolt out? Whack the top of the hub with a hammer, really hard, a bunch of times? Try prying the hub so that it would want to pivot on the bolt you're stuck on?

Ive had the top bolt out several times, when I replaced the springs, I fought with it with a breaker bar and a hammer.

the bolt is stuck to the hub, I can wiggle the hub around some and the bolt moves with it. I dont have a BFH so I need to try that
