If you have someone else press out the old, and in the new, MAKE SURE
you have the control arm properly supported. I've seen quite a few
over the years squeezed together by someone who wasn't that careful.
The proper way to do this is a pipe threugh the center of the CA while
pressing out. That way it doesn't bend inward.

Also, if you are planning on a rear sway bar at any time, and are
going to replace the CA's all the way around, buy two sets of fronts.
That way, you have the outer provisions for the bar, and just have to
fabricate supports for the center of the bar.
