Hit curb hard upper control bushing came out


I'm sorry but I'm not sure how to help. I understand that your vehicle hit a curb at 60MPH and the upper control arm bushing came out but what is it that you need to know? I will say that before you answer that question. If you are desiding to fix this SUV yourself. You may have other issues. Please inspect the whole affected area. A hard hit can change the alignment, warp a rim, damage a tire (bubble in the tread or sidewall), bend/damage steering components, The dealer sells the upper control arm as a complete assembly. Did the upper control arm rip away from the bushing or did the bushing rip away from the mount (on the frame)? Please let me know, thank you.

Does the 2008 colbalt have a lower control arm and bushing on the front passenger side,If so why do the auto stores not sell them they say not a part for the 2008 colbalt


Auto part stores rarely even carry lower control arms for anything. If you need one your best bet is either the dealer or a local salvage yard, considering the age you should be able to find one in very good condition. Also check ebay I just found 2 drivers side ones there. Saturn Ion, Pontiac pursuit, and Pontiac G5 also use the same control arm. Depending on suspension option. check this link I found on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2007-SATURN-ION-FRONT-LOWER-CONTROL-ARM-RH_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp3286Q2em20Q2el1116QQhashZitem4cea7ab3a7QQitemZ330351424423QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

Front right suspension is banging every time i go through bumps, even in slow speed like 30kph..


Check for a missing rubber bumper above the lower control arm. Also check for a loose shock absorber mount

I am not sure if I understand what your saying but durangos have problems with upper control arms and they have bushing kits or control arm replacements. and these both fix the upper control arm from moving and making the creeking noise.

How to change upper control arm on 1996 Honda Civic DX ?


UPPER CONTROL ARM:

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Remove the front wheels. Support the lower control arm assembly with a floor jack.
  3. Separate the upper ball joint from the steering knuckle using a ball joint separator tool.
  4. Remove the self-locking nuts from the upper arm anchor bolts. Remove the upper arm from the vehicle.

Do not disassemble the upper arm. If the ball joint or bushings are faulty, or the upper arm is damaged, the entire upper arm must be replaced.
To install:
Use new self-locking nuts when installing the upper arm and strut.
  1. Install the upper control arm assembly into the strut tower.
  2. Connect the upper ball joint.
  3. Install the front wheels and lower the vehicle.
  4. With all four of the vehicle's wheels on the ground, torque the upper control arm nuts to 47 ft. lbs. (65 Nm). Torque the castle nut to 32 ft. lbs. (44 Nm); then, only tighten it enough to install a new cotter pin.
  5. Tighten the wheel nuts to 80 ft. lbs. (110 Nm).
  6. Check and adjust the vehicle's front end alignment.
The bushings on the front lower control arms are replaceable on most models.
This procedure requires the use of a press and may be above the skill range of the average driveway enthusiast. It is recommended that this procedure be done by a qualified machine shop if you are not skilled in the proper use of a press.
  1. Remove the lower control arm that is in need of new bushings.
It is recommended that both the left and right lower control arm bushings be replaced at the same time. The vehicles handling may become unstable if there are new bushings on one side of the car and worn ones on the other.
  1. Set up the control arm in a press.
  2. Using a impact socket of the correct length and size, press out the old bushing.
  3. Install the new bushing by slowly using the press to push it into the control arm.
  4. WARNINGExcessive force could cause the bushing to bend or tear so be careful.
  5. Once the bushing is properly seated in the control arm, remove the arm from the press and install it on the vehicle.

Very common BMW problem. The front lateral arms that support the front to rear motion of the wheel. BMW calls it the upper, lower support arm. Two arms connect there. one left to right (think typical lower control arm, and this arm) It has a ball joint that connects to the lower most part of the strut and extends rearward to the rear crossmember and has a large bushing pressed into the arm. You can replace just the bushing if the ball joint end is ok. Bushings are about $45 each and you will need a press.
