In Reply to: Time to Replace Thrust Arm Bushings, Need Help! posted by Sean on June 28, 1999 at 13:13:03:
I second Rory's opinion, you should try to do it yourself. A pickle fork, sockets, torque wrench and jackstands are about all you need. Steve D'G @ the Ultimate Garage ([email protected]) he can set you up with parts and tools. I think $300 for a set of upper arms w/ 750 bushings.
Test them yourself. Jack up (like replacing a tire) AND use a jackstand to support the car. Push/pull on left and right side, if loose it's the upper arm. Do the top/bottom, if loose it's the lower arm.
You should probably order/replace the lower arms while you are at it. You don't want to revisit the front for a while.
Really, you should try it. There's a lot of web info to walk you through the process. Nothing like getting some guys under a car for a good time!
