Should there be any play in the frame mount bushings on the lower control arm or the rack and pinion frame mount bushing?


The control arm will move some, the bushings are rubber. Made to do that so the ride isn't like being in a tank. The rack only has one bushing, on the passenger side. If your talking about the bar behind the rack. It is called a sway bay. It has two frame bushings. If the sway bar is moving up and down 1/2 inch, the bushing are bad. There should be some movement, but 1/2 inch is excessive. Again they are rubber. Any thing rubber is going to have movement. But should be sloppy.

The k frame is rotted out in my 96 civic where it bolts to the passengers side lower control arm. How do I replace this k frame and will there be welding involved?


you can see if you can get a frame section from the wreckers and replace it or take it to either a welding shop or body shop and have it weld repaired.

If your frame is rotting I wouldn't recommend you invest money into the car unless it's worth it, consult a body shop to assess the damage costs.

I am trying to take the lower control arm on the passenger side of a 98 transport. The lower ball joint is being stubborn. I tried ball joint remover tool and not much room to work with and still dont


Lower Control Arm

Print
The lower control arm is a two-piece welded unit with a riveted ball joint. A conventional rubber bushing is used for the rear lower control arm pivot. The front lower control arm bushing is mounted vertically.


REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION

Some special tools are required to perform this operation including, a front hub spindle removal tool and a suitable ball joint separator tool.

WARNING Do not hammer or pry ball joint from knuckle. Failure to use recommended tools may cause damage to the ball joint and seal.
See Figure 1

Fig. Fig. 1: Exploded view of the control arm-to-frame mounting

  1. Raise the vehicle and suitably support by the frame allowing the control arms to hang free.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Remove the steering gear outer tie rod from the steering knuckle.
  4. Remove the stabilizer shaft link from the control arm.
  5. Remove the front drive axle shaft nut and washer.
  6. Use a suitable front hub spindle removal tool to Push the axle splines back out of the front wheel drive shaft bearing.
  7. Remove the drive axle from the transaxle.

Drive axle joint seal protectors should be used anytime service is performed on or near the drive axles. Failure to observe this could result in joint or seal failure.
  1. Place a modified inner drive joint seal protector on the drive axle joints.
  2. If equipped, remove the ABS wheel speed sensor jumper harness.
  3. Remove and discard the cotter pin, then loosen the nut from the ball stud.
  4. Remove the pinch bolt and the control arm mounting bolts, then remove the control arm from the vehicle.

1999 Ford Explorer Sport. Cracked Lower Seat Frame front of left side hinge attatchment/recliner handle. Lower seat frame needs to be replaced or welded. I am working out of town and can't get to a shop...


I have seen both wood and bricks used to put under a seat frame. Some of the seat mounts do not give you much room for using a wrench. They give you room for a 3/8th air rachet and socket. Especially if you are a little shorter you can elevate the frame and then put wood in the cavity and then lower the seat for a temporary fix.

There are some operating parts I have no name for, but they connect the gears on each side of the seat track. So the wood blocks have to fit between these parts. I can recommend a Salvage yard called "Parts Galore" which is expanding Nationwide. Again wrenching on this stuff is hard without power tools.

Can't address swapping passenger and driver tracks. Check out small "C" clamps or conduit clamp.

General Description
The front suspension allows each wheel to compensate for changes in the road surface without affecting the opposite wheel. Each wheel independently connects to the frame with a steering knuckle, ball joint assemblies, and upper and lower control arms.
The control arms specifically allow the steering knuckles to move in a three-dimensional arc. Two tie rods connect to steering arms on the knuckles and an intermediate rod. These operate the front wheels.
The two-wheel drive vehicles have coil chassis springs. These springs are mounted between the spring housings on the frame and the lower control arms. Double, direct acting shock absorbers are inside the coil springs. The coil springs attach to the lower control arms and offer ride control.
The upper part of each shock absorber extends through the upper control arm frame bracket. This bracket has two grommets, two grommet retainers, and a nut.
A spring stabilizer shaft controls the side roll of the front suspension. This shaft is mounted in rubber bushings that are held by brackets to the frame side rails. The ends of the stabilizer shaft connect to the lower control arms with link bolts. Rubber grommets isolate these link bolts. Rubber bushings attach the upper control arm to a cross shaft. Frame brackets bolt the cross shaft.
A ball joint assembly is riveted to the outer end of the upper control arm. A rubber spring in the control arm assures that the ball seats properly in the socket. A castellated nut and a cotter pin join the steering knuckle to the upper ball joint.
The inner ends of the lower control arm have pressed-in bushings. The bolts pass through the bushings and join the arm to the frame. The lower ball joint assembly is a press fit in the lower control arm and attaches to the steering knuckle with a castellated nut and a cotter pin.
Ball socket assemblies have rubber grease seals. These seals prevent entry of moisture and dirt and damage to the bearing surfaces.
Four-wheel drive models have a front suspension that consists of the control arms, a stabilizer bar, a shock absorber, and right and left torsion bars. The torsion bars replace the conventional coil springs. The lower control arm attaches to the front end of the torsion bar. The rear end of the torsion bar mounts on an adjustable arm at the crossmember. This arm adjustment controls the vehicle trim height.
Two-wheel drive vehicles have tapered roller sheel bearings. These bearings are adjustible and need lubrication.
Four-wheel drive models and RWD Utilities have sealed front-wheel bearings. These bearings are pre-adjusted and need no lubrication.
Heat treatment may create darkened areas on the bearing assembly. This discoloration does not signal a need for replacement.
Hope this helps?

You'll have to weld a piece of flat iron with mounting holes pre-drilled, on to the frame, or if the frame where it broke isn't too bad, maybe just pound it flat, and weld the cracks and grind them . Then be sure to put some large washers on it, and lock washers. Somebody must have had that off at one time, and didn't tighten the bolts enough.

Trying to remove control arm for a pontaic G6 2006


I had same problem with my 2006 G6 GTP 3.9 Engine. The front control arm pivot bolt would come out only so far and then hit the passenger side motor mount. I had to loosen the two (2) motor mount nuts from below, and then raise the engine and trans so that the pivot bolt could be moved forward enough to pull clear from the control arm. The control arm drops down, so that the sway bar does not have to be loosened or removed. Expensive part !! (lower control arm with ball joint), just to replace a failed ball joint. By the way, I have the "official" GM ZP/ G6 service manual, and it mentions Nothing about the motor mount interference problem. But, without clearing for that motor mount, that front bolt cannot be removed. (I don't have any experience with the 4 Cylinder G6 model, so can't help you there.)
