I can't find specs (grade and size) on this bolt, I think it is this one:
54563-3K000
Should I just bite the bullet and pick it up at the dealer? I found it on ebay for $9.
The bolt on my car is seized in the sleeve in the bushing, still not sure how to get it out. I was going to just replace the lower ball joint, but now I'm getting the control arm assembly.

Go to dealer,, proceed to part counter, have VIN in hand for fella to ID chassis in catalog.. point to part on pic,, I about know it not a shelf item, so they will order from their PDC, be there in couple day,, no shipping, you just come back and pick it up..

You must live in the good old salt belt.
Winters and salt enough to rust anything together.
I tried replacing the lower control arm and ended up rounding the bolt head
Sucker would just not come out.

So, watched a few videos on how to do it.
Tried again and the bolt head only wanted to round out more.
Gave up and asked a local garage to do the job.
It wouldn't come out. Ended up cutting and burning the whole thing out.
So, I had him do the other side lower control arm.
Same stuck bolt and same cut and burn it out
Had to buy the bolts from Hyundai. Took three days to get it.

When I watched the videos, they all made it look so easy.
Then, I found South Main Auto. Eric O. showed how tough it can be
especially when you live in the salt belt.

Good luck to you

I can't recall. Could it be that the lower plate shown in this diagram is a plate and not a cut-away and if I grind off the head of the bolt I can't get out and remove the bolts on the plate the plate can be removed and the arm will drop down? (A is the arm I need to remove and the loose bolt is the one I can't get out.) Sorry the image doesn't post. Break is over.

Do you have any more detail on how this was done? I don't want to paint myself into a hole. PITA for sure

Do we have pic of offending problem ??

Oh, forgot, the Hyundai 2001 was done under recall

It was the Suzuki that I tried to do myself and failed.
Sorry, don't have any details. Mechanic did it.
But, I remember that the front bolt was horizontal and the pain in the neck to get out
The other one (vertical) was said to be much easier.
Don't forget to order the bolt early or it will hold up the work

Hopefully the new control arm arrives Saturday and I'll have a pleasant weather weekend to annoy myself. Second photo is bottom view of the bolt head. There is a brake line just above the nut (first photo) so there's not much clearance on top.
