I need to replace my front lower control arms.


Does anyone know what the thread pitch is on these?

This is for an '05 CDTI

PFKL983488 BOLT, FLANGE, (12X87)           12 X 1.25  47lbf-ft
PFKL983602 BOLT, FLANGE, (14X94)            14 X 1.5   61lbf-ft

Bottom ball joint tighten to 58Lbf-ft then tighten until you can get the split pin in.
I would check that you can undo the bolts before you commit to doing the job completely and definitely spray them beforehand with penetrating fluid.
I had trouble getting the bolt to line up through the front bush ended up putting everything together except the front bolt then put the wheel on lower the car then towing the arm into place with a ratchet strap around the lower arm near the ball joint and through the tie down bracket at the front of the car then the bolt went in, but then I fitted PSB solid poly bushes to the arms the stock rubber ones are a lot more flexible.
