I think so, yes. However, I have broken several of those bolts using
the tool (although the first one held up for a dozen or so bushings).
The "real" tool looks like a giant C-clamp, and my "fittings" are now
living in the box next door at Carworks with it, since they help a lot.
(You can see the process of laziness on this curve...)
I have a new control arm out in my 90Q awaiting installation - new, with
bushings installed, was about $80.
Of course, I'll probably break the sway arm link thing unbolting it, and
muck up the alignment reinstalling the ball joint...
