    As the title states, anyone with a 2011 install new upper control arms? If so, who cut the head off and installed new bolt from the rear? I am currently in South Korea and I am having a local shop do a lift and upper control arm istall, but they are hesitant to cut the bolt and attempt re-install from the rear. They are telling me they don't think there is enough room and that there may be differences between the 2010(where all the literature on the net seems to reference) and 2011 that will prevent installation.

    Help! I would do all this myself, but I am without tools, a garage and the time to accomplish this.

    Have them take a crescent wrench and roll the pinch weld out enough to just remove the bolt from the front. I did that and unclipped one wire loom mount. It was so easy, I just put them back in from the front when I put my new uppers on and bent it back straight.
