Can someone tell me how to get the inner control arm bolt out without dropping the exhaust? If I pull the bolt straight out it hits the exhaust pipe and I can go no further without dropping it.

Side note, if I have to drop it, does anyone know how?

Thanks,

One more question, do I have to remove this or will the spring perch sit right on it?

You can leave those plastic tabs there, you can just loosen the cross attachment at the diff from the exhaust, then two 10, or 13 mm bolts looking up the rear bumper near the tips, you can then have enough play in the exhaust to get the bolt out.

Thanks Jeff, I will give that a try tonight. Also, given how difficult you guys are saying it will be to adjust the height of the rears, maybe you can give me some indication on how I should set the rear perch:
Just to give you some indication of the stance I am looking for this is how I set the fronts for now:

HELP needed with rear install.

I have removed the old control arm and have bolted the new one to the spindle, but I can not figure out how to get everything to line up. I am not sure if I skipped a step and forgot to remove something, but I can not create enough distance between the spindle and the subframe to install the new control arm. Is there an order of operations I am not getting? It seems the spindle is sitting a little "bottom in". I am sure I am missing something. Any ideas?
