My buddy is considering this mod, he has 40k miles. Is there a benefit to this. For that matter, is there a benefit if you have a brand new car??? Tim, sweet write up, as always!
I would not bother doing it on a new car, the main point of doing it is because they are supposed to last longer than OEM, besides a new car would be covered under warranty if the bushing goes, save it for post-warranty...

I was told by a tech that I need to have my front control arms/bushing replaced. With these new bushings, do I have to replace the control arms and the bushings still? Any part numbers?
Your write up looks amazing! I can't wait to do it on my car.
Did the tech say you needed both the CA AND bushing (or was he just going to replace both because that's what they usually do???)

You can replace only the bushings, you just cant replace only the CAs because you cant reuse a used bushing (it gets damaged pulling it off the CA supposedly)...

New control arms are $83 each from Pacific.
