Do the other end the same way and keep going back and forth and the arm will eventually get to the point where it won't turn any more. At that point, get both hands and or a cheater on the wrench and heave on it. The control arm brackets will act as a vise and both joints will be lined up for maximum misalignment and they will not ever come loose doing it this way.
Thanks! I need to get a fatter breaker bar. My wrench won't fit into my floor jack or hi-lift handle.

Cut it in half and weld long tube handles to each half. Flatten the tube slightly to slip inside and do a couple of plug welds.

well... i ordered the steel but was sent the aluminum ones by mistake, I did not feel like sending them back and getting the steel ones because of the wait time

so far the aluminum ones are nice the only bad part is, i was going to weld on tabs to mount the ebrake cable but i can not now

still a far better arm and an excellent upgrade to the rc arms, i am going to order matching aluminum upper for the front...

definitely think im going to stick with steel for the lowers though because of the high possibility of hitting them on a rock

The steel arms will get the powder coat scratched, the aluminum ones might get a little gouge or two, but they won't rust.

It won't hurt them in the slightest, except for getting a few scratches:



But either type of arm will work just fine.
