Do I need to buy the control arm bushings as well as this product?
Katie A on Sep 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, this kit came with everything needed for the control arm. I installed this kit on my car.
Just a little extra note on this install:
The only issue I came across was not the parts, but with the car... All YouTube DIY videos show the installation on the passenger side... Well, that is because the driver side SUCKS. The ATF pan is in the way of the front bolt on the arm. I had to remove three subframe bolts and jack the engine up to provide enough clearance to remove the bolt to take the old arm off and reinstall the new one. P.S. The passenger side is a breeze.
