SOURCE: 2004 Nissan Quest front control arm bushing replacement.

You can get just the bushings at autozone, checker, napa auto part stores for about $30.00 to $35.00. You can replace them yourself or take the vehicle to the shop.

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!

SOURCE: Clunking sound when going over bumps, especially at lower speeds

The lower control arm bushings in this car are not the best quality you should check them and also sway bar links and bushings are very common.

SOURCE: 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

How do i fix it


Sway bar bushing, Ball joints and Strut Mounts make these noises. See if the ball joint have grease fittings then get them greased. Check if Control arm bushings have play and can they be pumped with grease. If Control arm bushings have play then change the complete Control arm which will be economical in the long run. Please check and get back to me with more information.

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.

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

Loud clunking noise in front end over bumps


This is most likely one or both of these:

The intermediate steering shaft loses lubrication and develops a clunk - this is an engineering deficiency in many GM products dating back to the early 90s.

and/or

The electrically assisted steering column actually has plastic gears in it which wear down quickly, get sloppy and cause clunking through the steering wheel.

If your car is out of warranty, this will be expensive.

GM knows about both of these issues, and continues to engineer these problems into their products.

Lower control arm bushing.


i took the car into Winner ford to see if it was the lower control arm bushing again. i also had the oil changed and part of the oil change service includes the lube service, of which the steering stop bushings were lubed. the noise is gone. i have had the lower control arm replaced once (car had only 1500 miles, now 3300) it had sounded like an old man with arthritus!
