Upper control arm bushing removal and installation tool? Upper control arm pivot bolt?


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!

Right where? I see a stab bar with a frame mount through a bushing and bracket bolted to the frame, and another bushing mount at the control arm. I see nothing on the bar that looks like the part posted.

I'm sure you are right. I'm just not seeing it.

A stabilizer bolt not a sway bar bolt ... Look at the ends of the stabilizer.

OK, got it.

So under that smooth silver cap, you'd find this fastener?

Is that stabilizer a factory item?

And why would it be in a box for an UPPER control arm ball joint?

Not necessarily expecting answers here...just thinking out loud, so to speak.

Dont know why its in the box..... no the stabilizers are not stock. They are Monroe's stabilizers. They may be used for other things but they are used also for mounting stabilizers.
