big trouble

While changing my front break pads, i take a look inside the wheel well and notice everything needs changed out. And I mean everything. From the upper control arm to almost everything that i don't know the name of. The rubber "stuff" (no idea what it's called) is gone on both sides. I thought the squeak was from the break pads..but i guess not.

I really need basically everything, i just don't know where to look. Any help or information would be appreciated.

Bushings.

You can get most of what you are looking for at http://www.rockauto.com They have pretty cheap prices. I've ordered from them before. As for the parts they don't have, if cash wasn't too much of a problem, you can get polyurethane bushings from http://www.mn12performance.com

The upper and lower control arms you get from Rock Auto have the ball joint and the bushings already installed but they are the stock rubber bushings.

Hey SilverLX.

I've had the same problem, but not as bad. It was mostly a crunch noise, and bad steering. My car started to pull bad to the left.

MN12 Performance sell a bushing kit

Also you can build your own kit like I did, with Moog parts. Here is the Moog website http://www.federalmogul.com/cda/chan...2_7110,00.html This site is funky in how it works, but if you keep tring it will give you the part # for all bushing and suspension parts you'll need. These part # are the same CarQuest uses.

I paid $380, for all items.

Big note. I put the Sturt rod to frame bushing on backwards, Which caused it to brake down in a few months. I know now that the bigger bushing goes in the front.
