Hi Im David ,so what is your question? are you asking if the control arms are bad or could be bad?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I took it to a repair shop and they said the control arm bushings were shot. I have already replaced the ball joints and tie rod ends. I want to know if it's easier to replace the whole control arms or just the bushings
Expert:  david craig replied 6 months ago.

replacing the entire control arm is alot easier and less costly labor wise.
