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.

Why does my front end Squeek


4 main things to check on your particular vehicle. 1. Check your stabilizer bar bushings, make sure there's no play. 2. Your bottom control arm bracket which hold the non-serviceable bushings is probably the culprit. 3. Upper control arm. 4. Ball joint. Most likely it's your bottom control arm bracket. Spray some silicone on each bushing one at a time to narrow down what it is.

I have a 2005 camry with 260,000 km. I brought my car into the dealer for a routine maintenance asking them to check out a front end rattling when i go over large bumps. I was told that the control arms...


First,as you travel over a rough road that causes the rattle apply the brakes slightly,is the rattle gone now?If so it's loosely mounted brake pads and/or worn brake caliper mounting bolts/sliders.
Rattle still there with your foot on the brake?Then it's usually the sway bar links and/or sway bar bushings.
To check this sway bar noise,disconnect the sway bar links and tie the bar up/out of the way and try that same road.
No noise now? address sway bar bushings and/or links.
Still noise?Might be struts.
If someone tells you,.you have loose lower control arm bushings,have them show you the play in the bushings before you spend any $$$.

My 96 camry has a lot of play and strays whats wrong?


Better have the front end checked, might be a front end component, like a worn ball joint, idler arm,center link, worn rack-n-pinion, tie rod end, most likely front end alignment.

2005 camry with 62,000---2,000 over warranty----now my struts are making noices


Suspension parts are only covered on the basic 36k/3yr warranty!! If you are getting strut noises, this may be the bushings becoming worn(if normally driven it is rare for less than 100k vehicles). Cheack also control arm and sway bar bushings, as these are more likely to be worn than the strut bushings!!

You are on the right track, you can buy those bushings. Just go in and ask for the rear control arm bushings and they should be able to look it up and get the right ones for you. I have a 91 Camry, great cars.

Excessive play in the steering wheel, car is all over the road. What could this be?


The steering gear box is worn out. And, there's probably worn front suspension components adding to the problem. You will need to check the following parts for looseness or movement: Idler Arm, Upper and Lower Ball Joints, Control Arm Bushings, Pitman Arm, Inner and Outer Tie Rod Ends, Front Hub Bearings. All of these can be replaced in your driveway with the exception of the Control Arm Bushings which are pressed in and require special tools to remove and install the bushings. If you can't replace all of them, concentrate your efforts on the following: Steering Box, Idler arm, and Control Arm Bushings. If you can afford to have all of them done, the front suspension would be factory fresh and should, with proper wheel alignment, drive like a new car.

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.

Front sway bar


Should be behind the front wheels and is mounted to the control arms and the body . Most have sway bar links on the control arms, but some are mounted with clamps.If it is broken or the bushings are worn it is easy to fix. Just make sure you tighten the bolts with the car's wieght on the ground or the bushings will squeak going over bumps.
