It pretty straight forward. You have to take off the shock where it attached to the A-arm and the bumper. Pull the pin, fit new A-arm, reinsert pin and reassemble.

I figured just didn't want to screw up anything like lose a small screw etc. It's a rear A arm

Take pictures with your phone as you go.
Ugh... I learned that the hard way when replacing the seals in the HVAC head unit in my grand marquis... so many hoses... so many solenoids. I ended up removing the one from my other grand marquis to take photo's of so I could put the first one back together!

Was still worth the headache, fixing a 'non repairable' $400 item with $3 worth of new o-rings from mcmaster.com.

Welcome to the world of rc! Taking them apart will become half the fun, so just take your time. One things for sure, I wouldn't do it on a carpet. Those little screws and washers disappear fast in the shag. Find a nice table, lay an old towel on top, and everything will be visible as you work.

It looks like you may be able to sneak it out by only taking half the rear wheelie assembly off. Don't push the plastic too hard though if bending it..

Give yourself a lot of space to work. Lay stuff out as you take it off in the same manner that it goes back together. Take notes if you have to. I've done it all.
