DIY: Installing New Control Arm Bushings
You car's control arm bushings are usually made from elastic rubber or polyurethane that deteriorate over time. To avoid poor handling and tire wear, you must replace damage control arm bushings pronto. This guide will teach you how you can do it in your own garage.
Difficulty level: Moderate
What you'll need:
- New bushings
- Power drill
- Wire brush
- Lubricating oil
- Ratchet and socket
- Hole saw kit
Step 1: Park your car on a level surface. Then, find your car's control arms. They are bolted to the axle and frame. Remember that there are four control arms: two upper and two lower.
Step 2: With your ratchet, remove the bolts holding the control arms in place. To keep the axle in place, don't remove all the control arms at once.
Step 3: Lift the first control arm out of the brackets on the frame and axle to remove it.
Step 4: Get your power drill and hole saw. Then, drill a 1 1/2 inch hole completely through the center of the bushing.
Step 5: Using your pliers, remove the remaining parts of the bushing.
Step 6: Check the control arm hole for rust, scratches, and dirt. Clean it with a wire brush. If it's scratched and rusted, paint it with aerosol paint. Let the paint dry for three hours.
Step 7: Apply some lubricating oil on the outside of the new bushing. Then, align it and the control arm with the vise.
Step 8: To insert the bushing into the control arm, rotate the vise slowly. Rotate it until the bushing is fully set.
Step 9: Slide the control arm into the brackets to re-install the control arm. Put the bolts back and tighten then with the ratchet and socket.
Step 10: If the other control arm bushings need to be replaced, repeat all these steps.
