Found a set of wheels and tires at a SUPER good price!!! They are 17" Boyd Junk Yard wheels. The tires are not new but in good condition. They are bigger than I wanted but I just can't pass up the bargain.

I threw the wheels on and put the fender on to see how it looks.

Taking the rear control arms off today. I have three of four unhooked but the passenger side must be twisted because I can't get the bolt out!!! Round two is tomorrow when I can get some help. Ugh!

Did you spray the bolt with PB Blaster or WD 40 to break the rust. I had a hard time getting some of my bolts out. Maybe even heat would help.

It spins, I just can't get it to push threw. I'll have my dad to help so I can put some pressure on the back side. I did spray WD on and that helped a ton!!!

If I remember correctly on one of mine I had to cut the bolt to get it off.

If you have an air hammer with a punch type tip or even screwdriver and a hammer, you could put it on the end of the bolt and maybe drive it back through.

Got it! I had to cut 2 and beat the others out. The upper control arms came off easy. I'm going to order and new bolt kit to reinstall. I don't have an air compressor yet but hopefully I'll have one soon. I think air tools would make a few jobs easier.
