Rear upper Control Arms

Has anyone replaced arms or replaced the bushings only?


Edit:
Never mind. Got it.

I figured it out. I am going to write something up. The whole job was quite easy once done. Looks confusing when you take them off and they fall apart.

Both

~~Hello

One would replace the outer with the Knuckle Bushings. How-ever The inner is Alot harder because it is the Adjuster.

So you would replace the arm for the inner bushing, & Knuckle bushings for the outer.

I would also post how to re enforce this arm. There are pictures of re enforced upper arms around.
