Q: issues installing the front right lower control arm on a 2005 chrysler sebring 2.7l v6.

asked by on

Hi. I'm having issues installing the front right lower control arm on a 2005 chrysler sebring 2.7l v6. My issue is aligning the control arm with the rear hole that it bolts to . Im unable to move the damper fork attached to the strut assembly. I removed the lower bolt so it wouldnt be attached to the lower control arm. I want to remove the upper bolt and just take the entire fork off, but I read not to remove it, Any suggestions? Plus Ive been concerned with how much the driveshaft is allowed to move without damage. Ive done my best to not allow much movement, especially outward Thanks, Jim

There won’t be any issues removing the lower fork on the strut. It may make installation a bit easier to get it loose so the control arm can at least be aligned with the vehicle and the bolts started. If you are replacing the control arm after an accident that bent the arm, there may be more damage than you can see. If you are replacing the control arm to replace a worn ball joint, there are no extra parts needed for installation. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come out and take care of the control arm service for you at your leisure.
