What front end bushing is this...quick!

Ok, I'm a little clueless when it comes to exact names of bushings in the suspension. But I've been having this noise from my passenger side, and I had been thinking it was my shock. I did a little looking earlier and I found out it wasn't, but it's whatever this bushing is. What's this thing called so I can get it replaced ASAP! Thanks in advance....

I beleive it is a rear strut rod bushing. If your gonna do 1 then do them all. Go to www.mn12performance.com and get them there. I did and can't complain.

that is a "strut rod bushing - control arm side" which should not be confused with
"strut rod bushings - frame side".

How hard is it to replace, this is something I wanna get done quickly? I'll do the complete polyurthene set from mn12performance down the road a bit.

If I'm correct, just loosen the nut and pull out the rod and replace the bushing. If you go to www.mn12performance.com it tells you how to do it. Can even download how to do it and print it out. Look at the bushings and click on instructions, I think.

Use the search feature here. It is not as simple as just loosening or removing a nut, and swapping them out.

I have posted detailed info. before on this subject, so you can do a search by my screen name.

those bushings arent pressed in??? so after you take out the strut rod, you can just pull the old ones out (or in my case) lack there of old ones out), and just put the new ones in???

Basically yes, but you have to pay attention to the position of the nuts on the strut rod, otherwise you will have to get the front end aligned.

If the cars been running around without the bushing an alignment probably isn't a bad idea either way.
