How to replace arm bushes?

Independent suspension arm bushes are expendable elements, that is why they are not subject to repair. If you’ve found any signs of component malfunction, it should be immediately replaced, because long operation of a car with a defective bushing can lead to breakdown of the arm itself. This may require an expensive repair and carries a threat to road safety.

Arm bushes should be replaced at a service station because this requires a special remover, furthermore, the process can have special features for different car models and suspension types. It is recommended to replace components simultaneously on both sides on one axle. A service station specialist will lift the car body with a lifting platform, demount the wheel and will also remove the engine cover, if necessary. Then the steering knuckle and the arm will be disconnected from the ball joint, and after that the arm will be demounted. Then, with a special remover the broken bushing will be pressed out, a new one will be installed and the unit - reassembled. After work is finished, wheel alignment adjustment is a must.
