Question about 2001 Honda Civic
Front lower arm bushing is broken and I bought new one .need I press for pul out old bushings and put in new one?
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.

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 control arm is technically un-servicable and by the end of the day after finding something,then trying to wrestle these in where they work properly,probably the best, easiest and cheapest in the end is to replace the control arm.

Testimonial: "Thanks Jeff. I bought two control arms online and my mechanic installed them for me. He was surprised that they were not serviceable."
