Default How do i remove the lower a arms in a 83 camaro

I think i want to change my motor mounts and the best way i see of doing this is to remove the lower a arms and go through the spring pocket to get to the back bolts on the mounts, also i want to change the bushings to the hodchkis ones, i guess i was wondering if i could do this in my garage at home or do i need some special set up, worried about the spring tension. thx to all

i used spring tension supressors and you can also use a floor
jack after popping the tierod out, and you will need a press
to get the new bushings in the arms, i had a brake shop do the
bushing for 10 bucks for upper and lower, polyurathane with
a little grease, carefule with the springs, gearheads have
been killed from the springs, good luck :?
