Decided to make a DIY since I couldnt find one when installing it myself. My first time messing with the upper control arm and decided to pop my cherry and help others along the way. Sorry in advance if any pics blurry; they were all taken from my phone.
Did you feel a difference after you installed the skunk2 front camber kit? -Yes, it feels like I gained +10hp +5 lbs of torque
•17mm combination wrench
•Pliers ( To remove the cotter pin)
•Pitman Arm Puller (Rental at Autozone, was $15 in Los Angeles. May 2013)
•Breaker bar (Optional)
•WD-40 / PB-Blaster (Optional)
Lets get started, lift and jack your park up and remove the tires
Start with getting the coilovers/struts out of there.
Use a 17mm socket and a 17mm socket wrench to remove the bolt on the bottom of the shock fork that connects to the lower control arm.
Grab a 14mm socket wrench and remove the bolt located on the top portion of the shock fork that binds with the coilover/struts
Use a 14mm and 10mm socket wrench to remove the 5 bolts holding the coilover/strut in place.
Now the fun part! Removing the upper control arm
Use a 10mm socket wrench and remove the brake line mounting hardware
Grab your set of pliers and remove the cotter pin, I chose to use a needle nose plier
Use a 17mm socket wrench and remove the nut holding the balljoint
Use your Pitman Arm Puller rental tool and place it under the balljoint then grab an adjustable wrench and tighten the bolt until the balljoint pulls away
Use a 14mm socket wrench and remove the two bolts in the back of the upper control arm, and now you successfully removed the upper control arm without damaging the ball joint!
Now do all the steps in reverse when installing the Skunk 2 Front Camber Kit
•Place the skunk2 camber kit on place, install the two rear 14mm bolts
•Install the 10mm bolt that holds the brake line mounting hardware
•Put the balljoin in place, and install the 17mm nut
•Reuse or use a new cotter pin and place it in
•Grab your coilovers/struts and reinstall the five bolts on top in the engine bay
•Connect the shock fork and the coilover/strut and install the 14mm bolt on the top of the shock fork
•Install the 17mm bolt and nut on the bottom portion of the shock fork that connects with the lower control arm
AND YOUR FINISHED!
