Thats the one, before you start make sure your track rod ends are not seized which is a common problem, if you swap the LCA and then find you cant adjust tracking via tie rods then car is undrivable really.

Definitely second this one! I had a tough time getting mine loose way back when I changed these. A few consecutive days of penetrating oil, wire brushing and a few knocks with a hammer suddenly got mine moving. I completely unthreaded them and copper greased before refitting and aligning. Never had a problem since when it's gone for alignment adjustments so would recommend that if they give you grief.
