Default Lower control arm (wishbone) bolt removal

Anyone got an easy technique for removing those hard to get at bolts? Also are the bolts one use only? I need to change an ABS ring but I've dismantled a car that has a brand new ring, wheel bearing and lower control arm so might as well change the whole lot in one go.

You can re-use them if they haven't stretched or been installed backwards (like mine were!). Which ones are you finding hard to get at? Pinch bolt is easy to get at, and once that is out you can drop the arm out of the way making access to the two remaining bolts also pretty easy.

On the C70, diesel and X70 police cars they have 5 bolt wishbones rather than the 3 bolt on other models and some of the bolts can't be removed without moving the subframe/engine. It's a stupid design for maintenance but no doubt wasn't an assembly issue at the factory...

When I renewed the wishbones on my dads old C70 I reused the old ones that couldn't be removed easily. The only one you absolutely must renew is the pinch bolt & nut for the ball joint.
