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.
I can understand wear on the bushing, but what wear would be on the control arms? Is the "wishbone" the control arm on the ETK?

Control arms are the "Wishbone" on the ETK. I bought mine from the dealership 6 months before the aftermarket ones came out and this is what they called it on the receipt as well.
There are aftermarket control arms?
