SOURCE: Lower Control Arm Bushing replacement

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!

No the torsion bar if you look at it where it goes to the under carriage it will have a bolt for tension on each side. Are you tring to replace the bushings for the torsion bar? If so answer back.

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.

How do i remove yhe lower control arm on a 2008 Nissan Frontier 3.0l turbo diesel?

You need to loosen the torsion bar adjusting bolts until all the tension is removed, remember to mark a reference point from bar to frame so you can get close to the correct riding height after reassembly. Can't tell if you split the ball joint from the knuckle from your explanation but a couple of good solid whacks to the lower knuckle will unlock it. Mark & remove the control arm bushing bolts and use a pry bar to push out arm @ bushings.

Lower control arm or just bushings

sometimes it can end up cheaper replacing the whole lower control arm rather than just the bushing due to the labor/time it takes to remove and replace just the bushing get a second opinion to be sure

Makes noises and difficult to turn

I see this all the time, rattles, steering knocking, loss of power assist, etc.

What it all boils down to is a really bad designed steering system in the cobalt, HHR, Malibu, and any othere GM car that uses the electric steering system. I blame engineering for this problem.

The usual fixes are to replace the steering rack, steering intermediate shaft, and/or steering column. All of which is very costly for the consumer. And lets not forget the alignment.

The other noise makers are the sway bar links and the lower control arm bushings that break out.
