Strut Rod Bushing Question?

Hey guys, I replaced my strut rod bushings to the LCA when I did UCA's and LCA's... I should have replaced my bushings at the k member. Well here's my question: Would i tbe possible to remove the bushings at the LCA, and the big nut at the front of the K member, and be able to replace the K member bushing like that? Kind of slide the strut rod through the hole that it goes to the LCA? I really don't want to detatch the LCA where the alignment bolt is... it's perfectly aligned, and not many shops can do that =P Would it be feasibly possible?

I searched but couldn't find anything useful. Thanks!!

IF my memory serves me right i ran into the same problem ( replaced one and not the other, had to go back and do it again) but i do think its possible, it took me alot of strength, many tries, and many many curse words, but i did do it. it took alot of prying on things i probably wasnt supposed to but got it!! and everything worked out in the end. good luck!

don't want to mess up the suspension?

mark the big washer and the frame it connects to the frame with some paint marker. mark 2 or 3 marks each side so even though you take the lower control arm out, then you can use the marking to put it back to spec.

My daily job is to fry rice for my customers....
