lower control arm shock mount bushing

Anyone know of a replacement part # I can order for the above. I don't want to replace the entire LCA. I also got a price of $52 each for replacement front anti-sway bar endlinks. Does that sound about right? I bought energy suspension replacement bushings, but they won't work on the front ones, just the rear. Please help fast. Does Moog have a website? I keep hearing that manufacturer mentioned but I cannot find any info on them.

RockAuto has the shock bushing... I know, I just installed a pair when I did my suspenion upgrade.

If you order from RockAuto, don't forget the discount code.

I think that's the right one. I don't have the box here with me at work so I can't say 100%.

I have a 12 ton press and it was still a PITA. Not because it is tight or anything, but I couldn't find a "drift" the right size to fit the outer shell so I could press it out.

If you try to just press it out using the center metal shell, the rubber will rip loose and you'll be left with the outer shell still attached to the arm (don't ask how I know this...).

But if you can find a thick walled tube the right diameter to fit the outer shell, it presses out just fine. That is assuming the arm is out of the car. I don’t know how you would do it on the car.

Good luck.

oh yeah...there is NO bushing at all left inside the control arm. If there is, its only pieces of it, so that might help some. But still.......damnit damnit damnit !!!

Does this part need to be replaced if you are replacing the control arm?
