Search has yielded a number of threads dealing with having just the bushings replaced vs. buying a new control arm, urethane bushings, etc.. but I haven't run across a How To. I understand that each side is 3 bolts and the nut on the ball joint. It sounds straightforward enough, however when I did the driver side it was anything but straightforward. Getting the old one out wasn't bad, but getting the new one in and lined up was a pain in the arse. Ended up unbolting the sway bar link, the tie rod end and the strut from the spindle, and loosening the 3 nuts at the top of the strut. Is that the normal process or the overly complicated method? <p><br>**EDIT** Nevermind, I found one. <A HREF="http://turbobil.com/SMF/index.php?topic=31.0" TARGET="_blank">http://turbobil.com/SMF/index.php?topic=31.0</A> Who would have thought the original search would be useful. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>
