I have 94 Lincoln Mark VIII I am in the process of changing out all of my front suspension components. I want to change the upper control arms. I tried to get the drivers side off, the front nut looks very easy, but to get the back one it looks like I have to remove the master cylinder. Is there a trick I am missing? Also do I have to remove anything on the passenger side?
Yeah, the 18mm ratcheting wrench makes the job a lot easier. It's not necessarily impossible without it but it's not really a job I'd want to do without it either (having done it both ways, I had a lot less blood to show off with the fancy tool to help).
Passenger side has the A/C accumulator in the way. Same deal; 18mm ratcheting wrench is invaluable.
