SOURCE: Lower Control Arm Bushing replacement

Hi,
I just did this job on my 98 regal, and I own the service manuals also. The lower control arm bushing that usually goes, is the front one. The rear one doesn't usually go, it is horizontally mounted. The front one for some reason is vertical. The control arm must be removed, and put in a vise. The front bushings outer metal sleeve, must be driven out with a chisel. It comes out easily. The new bushing can be tapped in with a hammer. Hope this helps!

when you changed the plugs, did you make sure to gap them correctly? also, this could be faulty wires. Why did you replace them to begin with?

How to replace ball joint


If the lower ball joint is riveted to the lower control arm you will be way better off replacing the entire control arm. They are available at your local parts store and are not that much more.

jack up the vehicle. remove the wheel, remove the nut from the ball joint. remove the stabilizer link from the lower control arm. strike the knuckle where the ball joint goes through with a large hammer until the ball joint separates from the knuckle. Remove the horizontal mounting bolt, remove the vertical mounting bolt, remove the lower control arm.

How to replace temperature sensor 2005 buick rainier


To get to it, you must remove the alternator and alternator bracket first. Bottom bolt on the bracket and alternator is difficult to get to. I find that using a ratcheting box end wrench is the easiest. You might as well replace the thermostat while you're in there, it's 2" below the actual sensor on the drivers side of the vehicle. Also removing the drivers side tire will make easier work of this job.
