No, Loosen the tire bolts a bit, Jack it up by the frame so the wheel hangs, take off the tire. (Always use a jack stand for safety)

Spray the 4 nuts holding the the upper control arm bracket against the wheel well with a thin penatrating spray. Also spray the 2 bolts on both ends holding the control arm in place. Now go do something else for a while, Like change your oil or clean your interior. Spray the nuts and bolts again, it's been 16 years since they were installed. Go take in a show or take a mini vacation to the Azores. Spray them again. Use a half inch drive braker bar with a long extension to lossen the 4 control arm bracket bolts. You may have to use an impact driver if the breaker bar doesn't work. Loosen the 2 long bolts that hold the control arm in place. Now disassemble the hole mess. Reverse the process, take it for a spin, your front end play should be gone. Now go have a beer. Good luck, Eric J

Why does the axles or the control arm move or shift from side to side when sheering?

I am having the same problem and it turns out to be that the bushing in the control arm to the frame is shot. The control arm is not suppose to move at all. This will also cause tire wear. You can actually replace the bushing at an inexpensive cost however, if you try to buy the bushing kit from the Saturn dealer, they will tell you that you have to replace the control arm. That is very expensive. By the way , you need a press to replace the bushing.
