Many bushings all over in cars and all are pressed in. Which bushing are you referring to?

Which one and why? If you have noises, it's not the lower control arm bushings. All these Camrys need rear sway bar bushings for the noise in the rear. For the noises in the front you'll need new strut mounts and the transmission mount that is on the far left hand side, in front of the driver between the frame and the end of the transmission housing. Any other bushing please specify and I'll tell you how to do it.

    I just saw the "control arm" in your title, it didn't show up on the website at first. The control arm bushings rarely fail so please take what I said previously to heart. If you really want to change them anyway, it's not easy. You'll need a press to get them out and then in again. Some people try to burn them out with a torch and then press the new ones in, either way, a tricky job. Sometimes easier just to get control arms from a scrap yard. I can't emphasize enough though, if you have a rattle in the front end...over bumps it's the strut mounts. If you get a rattle when you're initiating a right turn, it's the transmission mount.

    The control arm bushing definately had to be replaced - totally worn out. But it was a real pain to get back in. But...then found out that the axle needed replacing too. Gotta love older cars.....

2002 toyota camry brake grinds on potholes


unless you can replace pads/rotors, I would say take it to a mechanic.
If this only happens on uneven surfaces, it could also have something to do with front struts or control arm bushings.
Best to have a pro check it out.

How to rplace 91 camry front control arm bushes they are worn and slip accordin to one place and they want $170 to do the work are they easy to replace or is it better just to let them do it for that price


To properly replace control arm bushings the lower control arm has to come off the car and the bushings need to be pressed out and the new ones pressed in. If you don't have accesss to a press, it's probably best to let them do it. That sounds like a pretty reasonable price to do both sides. Hope this helps.

2005 Toyota Camry (2.4 L) control arm bushings tearing out


most of the time the bushings are so hard and tight they neeed to be put in using a hydraulic press, requiring them to be removed from the vehicle. they may not cause any symptoms in your steering but they may squeak and/or eventually break loose which, during travel, is very unsafe. i advise to get them changed

I pretty much just need a walk through of how to replace the from right and left lower control arm bushings for my 95 camry


try looking on ebay, if you get the complete arms, after market they are not that much, then you can bolt them on much easier then pressing in bushes.
your car failed the mot on wish bones i guess.

2005 camry front control arm bushings


I've been working at a Toyota dealership for a long time and I have never seen lower control arm bushings wear out at 50k..or 100k for that matter, unless the car had been in a major accident. If they were bad you would have heard a lot of clunking noises driving over bumps and turning.
I think you should find another dealer and get a second opinion.
