BMR Toe Rod Help

I have a 2013 2SS. I ordered from BMR Toe Rods, Trailing Arms and front and rear sways. I got the trailing arms in. Toe rod I got the passenger side in no problem. On the drivers side I can not get the inner bolt out. Nut and eccentric washer are off. Any suggestions on how to get the inner bolt out? I am doing this in my driveway on jack stands.

Thank you,
Dimitri

Just did that today. Had to remove the lower strut bolt from the lower control arm to let the wheel drop enough then had to push down on the wheel by stepping on the rim. When putting it back had to have a extra person twist the wheel to line it back up.

How do you lower the cradle?

Yes, you have to lower the cradle down a bit to get that inner bolt out. It's all explained in the instruction sheet that you "should" have received with the toe rods. See here:

The instructions sheet shows a car in a rack up high, shows two steel poles being used. I am doing this in my driveway on jack stands.

You will need to put a jack under the differential, remove the 4 cradle bolts and then lower it just enough to get the tie rod bolt. Or just remove the bolts on the driver side and loosen the ones on the passenger side.

Support the entire cradle by putting a floor jack under the rear end housing, and then liberally loosen the four cradle bolts. Once the bolts are loose, lower the cradle down a little bit by lowering the floor jack a little bit (you should only need an inch or two max). There is a wire harness plug over on the passenger side, just don't lower it too much to the point that you over extend that harness. I don't think you will need to completely remove the two front bolts as the instructions state, but if required you can do that.
