Well where the nut! You need to grab opposite side of the arm! There should also be a spit for a wrench on the threaded portion! You can use 2 when he's on on nut like 18mm and one on shaft like 8mm or 9mm

Just take the bolt off the top of the arm, way easier. I figure you must be doing a leveling kit install. I don't know why they don't just have it that way in the instructions. I fought that stupid thing for 20 minutes on the first side. Removed it from the top and had the whole other side done in 10.
