pitman arm puller you can rent one from auto zone or buy it. it's alot easier to spray all the bolts every day with pb baster do that for a week it gives it time to soak. I recommend putting so locktite on the pitman arm nut.

Dont forget to pick up an extra set of lower control arm CAM bolts. They rarely ever come out.

really how do you end up getting them out then and also how do you get them back in the the same position because the directions say to mark the bolt and the bracket to line them up again upon reinstall???
