I'm in the process of removing the passenger's side rear hub assembly and I ran into a problem. First, does anyone know how to remove the bolt for the lower control arm? (see first photo). I tried to undo the nut but it just turns the bolt too. There's nothing to put a wrench onto to stop the bolt from turning. Do you have to remove it from the sub-frame (back).

Second, just for clarification, I have to remove the bolt in the center of the hub in order for it to be freed from the axle, Correct? (second photo) Does anyone know this hex size since I don't have it and I have to go buy one.

Quick responses are appreciated since I'm on a lunch break...
