    I have a lowered Pontiac G8 and my ball joints is loose so I need to replace the control arm.

    I’m trying to figure out how can I tighten the control arm bolt with the car on the ground. Since its lowered I won’t be able to get in there. I was thinking I could use a ramp to get the car high enough but moving the car with loose control arms may not be good. I would love some suggestion.

    Many Thanks

    If you drive the vehicle up onto the ramps slowly you should have no issues.
    Remember you’ll still need to get a front end alignment when completed.
