Do I have to take control arm off to change bushings?
Manny on Aug 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The bushings pictured here do not need to be pressed onto the control arm. If you watch the video you will notice the long stud on the control arm goes through the bushings hole. The bushings on the other side are press-in.
