Removing 260z rear control arms

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Turns out I'm a derp and am having trouble getting the rear control arms off a 260z to change the bushes. The problem lies with the rear hub connecting to the outside of the control arm. Are they connected by a single large stud about 200mm long with a nut on either end? I have removed the nuts but cant work out how to disconnect the hub from the control arm. Maybe I'm having a dull moment, so any help would be great!

Cheers

Hope you remembered to remove the cotter pin that's about halfway along the pin virtually under the hub. You will see a 10mm nut and the pin comes out underneath. But be careful removing it, you don't want to bash it with a hammer. look exactly like an old bicycle crank cotter pin but a lot more stubborn to get out!

Don't suppose anyone knows where to get a pair of new lower rod mount thingies? Saw a set on ebay for 80usd - surely they are available elsehwre cheaper?
