Remove the steering rack with a 15mm socket from behind to hold the bolts and grab an 18mm socket to remove the front nuts. Undo the outer tie-rod ends from the spindle by removing the Cotter pins and castle nut with a 19mm wrench. Free the tie-rod end, disconnect the steering shaft, and slide the rack forward, keeping an eye on the two power steering lines. Now, place a jack underneath the lower control arm on the inboard side and remove the lower control arm bolts with a 24mm socket for the nut and a 21mm socket for the bolt head. The front bolt will slide forward and the rear bolt will slide backwards, but you may need to remove the outboard crossmember bolt with a 15mm socket in order for it to slide out. Lower the jack slowly to relieve the spring pressure.
