    I need to replace the upper control arm on both rear sides.
    Though, how difficult is it?
    Just looking at the arm, it looks pretty straight forward, though anything I should know?

    Super simple. A little bit of PB Blaster put on bolts before removal helps with any rust/corrosion build up.

    Just don't forget to tighten the joint until there is a load in it.

    Did it with a buddy earlier today, much easier than I expected.
    Though figured out midway that I got 2 left-sides, and nothing for the right side, so that's another 3 weeks of waiting due to shipping :ohdamn:

    Thanks either way =)
