I ordered a set of hamburg-technic control arms as well as new tie rods and will be installing it this weekend. So yesterday i took one wheel off to see what i will have to do this weekend, compare it to pictures on this site etc. I tried to take the outer nut off on the control arm and it came off without the need to use an allen key. The middle part was not spinning as mentioned here and i was able to use a regular socket I was able to tighten it with a socket wrench as well. This of course means that i should be able to use a torque wrench too. I did not try the inner nut but hopefully i will be able to use a socket there too, especially because i will be taking off the tierod, so there will be a lot more room up there.
