I'm not experienced with doing work on my van... but I'm really trying hard to learn more about it.
I went out and gave what you suggested a try but I'm not completely following.
I have a haynes diagram of this area, but they don't mention control arm... but I think I know where it is.
I've attached a picture. I don't want to put the jack in the wrong spot.
Could you indicate where on the picture?
So my floor jack couldn't get in there, but my bottle jack did. Got a long crow bar under the wheel, and there is a very little bit of "bumping". Took a look at the ball joint and there is a little play. Would you recommend I go ahead and try to replace it?
A buddy of mine lent me a ball joint remover/replacer press and C-clamp.
If I just did one side and not the other for now, would that be bad? I have parts for both but maybe not time right now.
Skill level unknown ;)
