Welcome. The best way to do jobs like this
is to get a chassis service manual, truly.

If you go to wild about cars.com you may be able
to find it. I have a hard time navigating that site,
but it is there somewhere, good luck and post some
pics of your ride.

If you plan to work on your car I agree, get signed up at wildaboutcars and if you want a hardcopy purchase the Chassis Service Manual for your year.

I'm not sure I follow your question though. Yes, you knock out the pin with a small punch and hammer, then you wiggle and pull the arm out. Were you looking for clarification or just wanted to make sure you were on the right track?
