1998 Accord EX upper control arm & Lermo ball joint replacement
Doing overhaul, new hub, wheel bearings, lower ball joints, upper control arm with ball joint. I have a reference from a 2007 that says to use a 3/16 steel rod as a guide when positioning the upper arm... Is this applicable to the 1998? So far I have removed the wheel bearing & lower ball joint, the hub support is removed and I'm waiting on my new parts to arrive which should be here tomorrow. I haven't removed the upper control arm yet, I think it looks pretty easy just want to get some feed back as to once I remove it for how to reinstall i.e. Torque/positioning... Read a write up to use the steel rod to position but don't know if this applies for the 1998.
