Finally got the control arm bolts cut out and the new bmr control arms in. Also found out my steeringrack leaks yay lol. Looks like the 15:1 rack is gonna come sooner than expected. Still gotta get my che arms for rear yet also.

Quick side note. Milwaukee torch carbide recip blades are the tits. Made 4 cuts on the driverside bolts with life to spare on one blade. Im impressed.

I tried doing the Sawzall method of removing the front control arms once. I killed 2 blades and ended up using a longer breaker bar and the damn things came apart easy.

I'm going to have to grab a Milwaukee blade or two to have on hand here soon.
It's Gumby's fault.

If it wasn't for all the ziebart coating under the car and oil from leaks id've just torched them out but I found out that ziebart burns when heated enough and I didn't want to deal with that lol. I went through a 5 pack of diablo bimetal blades first try and only got halfway through and gave these a try lol. Pass side was a piece of cake tho they came right out lol. I just hope the back end goes smooth
