    Front Control arm bushing Replacement?

    Ok, so I found out yesterday that my bushing is going out. Anyone know how to replace these? Any help would be great.

    They need to be pressed in. So you can do it yourself if you have a vise or bring it to a shop to get it done.

    might be cheaper to just change the control arm..

    They are very easy to press in and out. You can do it with a normal bench vice. Only takes 30-45 min per side and makes a WORLD of difference to the handling with new bushings.
