Re: '86 5KS Control Arm

I'm assuming you have the car on jack stands. Assemble as stated,
the reverse of dis-assembly, when it comes time to hook up the
sway bar, use your jack to compress the suspension.

I replaced sway bar bushings on my fiance's car and had to do
the exact same thing.

HTH. (maybe I'm wrong in your case?)
