Measure the end of the control arm. I measured from the surface that contacts the body to the locking nut. Make note of the measurement.

Control arm has a placement in the middle for a wrench to hold. Using a 19mm wrench in the middle and a 27mm wrench (I didnt have it at the time), loosen the lock nut.
