Next, we stripped the lower control arm, pushing the pivot shaft out of the bushing from the back. The bushing shell will remain fixed to the shaft, but it is easily removed by striking it with a chisel, at degree intervals along its length. Lower Control Arm We cleaned and painted the arm, and then pressed in the shaft and fresh bushing.
Is it possible to remove control arm bushings without a press? Find out how we do it in the Budget Build Garage. We'll show you 2 easy (and cheap) ways to re.
