Do you mean the lower control arm?
Some mechanics call it an A-FRAME.

It must be replaced, or take to a commercial repair center (like for big trucks, etc.) instead of some consumer garage.
They can replace or straighten / weld it and do the alignment for less than half of any consumer garage. And be ready in one day!!

Front end probably


Bent wheel, defective tyre, wheels out of balance, alignment and uneven tyre wear, defective or worn shock absorbers, excessive wear or lash in the steering/suspension components, binding front brake(s), front brake discs warped or excessive axial runout...

Most commonly it is wheel imbalance that is the culprit.

Frony endmakes a humming noise


I would have a front end alignment done, because toe-in can wear tires and make a humming noise. Could also be wheel bearings, which an alignment would also catch. Could even be a bent rim or tire bulge, which they should also catch. Just make sure you tell them about the hum. It could as simple as the tires were incorrectly rotated from one side to the other. That can cause a hum as well, because of stretched cords.

1996 jeep cherokee sport shakes badly over 40mph


Front end need to be checked. checked shocks and stabilizer links.
check damper shock.
Check the tie rods. They had come loose, causing the wheels have excessive play and vibrate. Be aware that they will not balance tires or give a front end alignment if the tie rods are the culprit. They must be replaced first, otherwise the alignment will only hold until the first time you turn the wheel...which could be 5 seconds after you get in the car. Good luck.

How to replace front discs (abs)


Jack up the vehicle, and place a jack stand under the frame where you are working. Remove the wheel/tire. Observe the caliper. On the back side, remove the bolts that holds the caliper onto the caliper bracket. Suspend the caliper, and try to not stretch or kink the rubber brake hose. Next, remove the bolts that holds the caliper bracket to the metal plate. After the bracket is loose, tap on the backside of the rotor to dislodge it from the hub. This is a very easy procedure.

I have a bent arm going out to the wheel hub is


It's called the CV Joint if that's is the arm you are try to describe. The CV Joint should be connected to the front wheel hub and the other end to the transmission. It may look bent but that's normal unless it's the bar it self. Only the ends should seam like it's bent.
Good luck and hope this helps

INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

ef3fd91.gif

  1. Install the parking brake lever (2).
  2. Install the spring washer (3). The concave side of the spring washer should face the parking brake lever.
  3. Install the pin (4).
  4. Install the retaining ring (16).
  5. Install the adjuster pin (12) in the shoe (15) so the pin projects 6.8 to 7.0 mm (0.268 to 0.276 inch) from the side of the shoe web where the adjuster actuator is installed.
  6. Apply brake lubricant or equivalent to the threads of the adjuster screw (14) and inside diameter and face of the socket (7). Adequate lubrication is achieved when there is a continuous bead of lubricant at the open end of the adjuster nut (10) and the socket (7) when the threads are fully engaged.
  7. Install the upper return spring (5).
    • Lay the shoes (1 and 15) on a clean, flat work surface in the position they will be in when installed on the backing plate.
    • The shoe with the parking brake lever goes to the rear of the vehicle.
NOTICE: Do not over-stretch the upper return spring. Damage can occur if it is stretched to more than 204.2 mm (8.04 inches) .

  1. Install the adjusting screw assembly.
  1. Lubricate the shoe pads on the backing plate with a thin coat of white lithium grease.
  2. Install the shoe and lining assemblies (1 and 15).
  3. Install the upper return spring (5).
  4. Install the adjusting screw assembly.
    • Do not damage the wheel cylinder boots.
    • Overlap the bottoms of the shoes so the upper shoe ends clear the wheel cylinder boots.
    • Make sure the upper shoe ends rest on the wheel cylinder piston ends.
    • Do not place the lower shoe web ends under the anchor plate until the lower return spring is installed.
NOTICE: Do not over-stretch the lower return spring. Damage can occur if it is stretched to more than 107.3 mm (4.22 inches) .

  1. Install the lower return spring (6).
    • Bring the ends of the shoe and lining assemblies (1 and 15) together over the anchor plate.
    • Hook the spring ends to the shoe web holes.
    • Spread the lower ends of the shoe and the lining assemblies to clear the anchor plate.
    • Position the shoes against the backing plate and release them.
    • Pull the spring into the groove at the bottom of the anchor plate.
  1. Connect the hold-down pins and the spring assemblies (8).
  2. Install the adjuster actuator (11) over the end of the adjuster pin (12) so the top leg engages the notch in the adjuster screw. NOTICE: Do not over-stretch the actuator spring. Damage can occur if it is stretched to more than 83 mm (3.27 inches) .
  3. Install the actuator spring (13). The free end of the adjuster actuator (11) must engage the notch of the adjuster nut.
  4. Connect the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever (2).
  5. Install the drum. Align the marks made during disassembly.
  6. Adjust the rear brakes.
  7. Install the tire and the wheel. Align the marks made during disassembly.
