Pitman ARM!!!!!! control arm bolts, trackbar stud. I would do it on all bolts that you are going to remove just the night before. But soak that Bitch a$$ pitman arm good! If you want I can sell you my $75 puller cause I really don't need it anymore.

i'm renting one from autozone. thanks though

if you cant find the correct size wrench or socket for the pitman arm bolt, a pipe wrench works also, and the nut must be heat treated also, atleast on mine the pipe wrench didnt do anything to the nut to mar it up.

You'll want to soak everything really well in penetrating oil the night before, and maybe even the night before that, too. Depending on the age of the truck, and where you're at.

If you're around a lot of salt in the winter time, you're going to need to REALLY soak it good.

Good luck with the project, I hope things go well, both during the project, and at the end of the weekend...
