I've changed the ball joints on the front upper control arms and can still feel movement in them. Time to pull the arms off and change the bushes. Anyone done this before? It seems getting to the nuts on the inside requires a lot of stuff to be moved; any tips?

The OSF is the bugger, Even worse if you have airmatic suspension. I had a telescopic magnet holding the nut whilst passing the bolt through from one side to the other.
