You will need a press for the are pressed in. Pounding them out will distort the arm itself

How do i change my rubber bushings on the front suspention of my 1997 dodge ram 1500


opper Control Arm Bushings
  • To access the upper control arm, remove the shock absorber and the strut bar. Also, disconnect the sway bar from the lower control arm, if your particular Ram model is equipped with it. After that, you can hold the coil spring in place with a spring compressor.
    Secure the wheel hub assembly to the chassis using a wire before you disconnect the upper ball joint. This will prevent damage to the brake hose. When ready, release the ball joint using a ball-stud loosening tool (see Resources).
    The upper control arm mounts to the chassis with a cam bolt assembly. Once removed, you can place the control arm on a vise and remove the bushings using a bushing service tool (see Resources). When installing the new bushings, do not use any lubricant but make sure the flange on the bushing end seats properly on the arm bore. Then re-install the upper control arm. When finished, take your Dodge vehicle to a good shop to align the front suspension.
Lower Control Arm Bushings
  • Remove the shock absorber and strut bar. If your particular model is equipped with a sway bar, disconnect it from the lower control arm.
    Secure the coil spring with a spring compressor and release the lower ball joint from the wheel/hub assembly using a ball stud loosening tool (see Resources).
    Now you can release the lower control arm by removing the rear mounting bolts. Remove the bushings with a bushing service tool (see Resources). When installing the new bushings, do not use lubricant and make sure they seat properly on the control arm bore. Then replace the lower control arm. When finished, take your Dodge vehicle to a good shop to align the front suspension

1998 cavalier, front brakes I just had new front brakes and rotors. They asked to install Control arm bushings and lower control arm bushing. I declined. Now the car pulls to the left when I brake. Why?...


I would say your brake work wasn't done correctly,wouldn't you

Did it pull with the old brakes? Doubt it

Control Arm Bushings -- I would resolve the brake issues
first & need a really good reason to do the control arm bushings

Visual Evidence & Technical Service Bullettins & an Alignment

they are pressed in and they press out as well. A auto parts machine shop can do this job for you at a better rate than a dealer will

I have been experiencing very strong vibrations in the front end


You need either new ball joints or control arm bushings. Possible your transmission is unbalanced but I would put my $ on control arm bushings.

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!
