Author Topic:   lower control arm bushings
posted January 08, 2004 08:32 PM
If I am having problems getting new bushings in I take a die grinder and open the control arm holes up a bit so the bushings almost slip fit in. After getting them installed i tack weld them in 2-3 spots so they dont come loose. Hope this helps.

anti-seize the control arm and a BFH. all kidding aside make sure the bushing starts straight in the control arm and about two hits with a hammer should do the trick with anti-seize.

put the bushings or ball joints in the freezer.

warm the a arm a little, not much, usually if its cold outside I just leave them in the house overnight, or hit with a torch a little.

they fall in, never have used a hammer!!!!
