Continue disassembling the rear suspension by removing the 10mm bolt that holds the brake line on the framerail. Then remove the two 21mm bolts that hold the caliper and bracket to the knuckle and zip tie it to the lower control arm. Slightly support the spindle upright so you can remove the 24mm nut/bolt combo holding the shock absorber on the lower control arm. Loosen the 18mm nut on the upper ball joint and rattle the tapered ball-joint shaft out of the upright. Once that is removed, use the massive 151/416-inch socket to loosen the halfshaft nut in the upright.
