to remove lower control arm bushings you need to remove control arm from vechicle have control arm bushings pressed out.you need to remove disconnect torsion bar,remove shock absorber,disconnect stabilizer bar link, remove axle half shaft, remove the lower ball joint, remove control arm mounting bolts, then remove lower control arm.
you have to take off the tie rod end and lower ball joint and cv axle nut and the strut lower arm that's connected to the control arm.then you will have two bolts one on the right and the one on the left is under the car with a 13mm nut on top.
Hi there, This may seem like a generic answer. But its a good idea.
Best thing to do is buy a Haynes or Clinton's repair shop manual at your local AP store for your particular vehicle. Then read up on it in the trouble shooting section or the step by step RR section. You can purchase these at your local Auto Parts store or buy them on line at ebay burdfrenzy
I would suggest replacing the lower control arm bushings along with the sway bar bushings (4 pcs) in the then have a mechanic jack up the back and ascertain if any looseness is detected in the rear control arm assembly
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!
That is true as far as a Genuine Nissan replacement part is concerned. The bushings are not serviceable through Nissan. You may be able to find them at an aftermarket parts store (ie. Napa, Advanced Auto, etc). If you don't have the tools to push the old bushing out and the new one in, the arm may be the best way to go (and the easiest). Just remember to have the car aligned after replacement to ensure proper tire wear.
Hope this is helpful!

What kind of squeaking - how fast - turning left or right - how hard. Does it go away under any special conditions ie wet, hot, cool etc Applying brakes make a difference When hitting bumps or speed bumps
I just went thru this on mine... it is easiest to get to from the bottom right corner... remove the shields and it's right there... take the lower adjustment bolt out , the upper rear bolt and the upper outer bolt out , drop it down and swap wires and replace . Tip; a shorty phillips screw driver works well to allign the holes on the upper rear bolt. DO NOT tighten any of the bolts untill they are all in.
