Front Lower Control Arms left/right

Discussion of Infiniti's amazing (and underrated) sport-luxury crossovers, the EX35 and EX37. For 2014, the EX series will be renamed QX50, in line with Ininfiit's new naming conventions.

Front Lower Control Arms left/right

Postby piSSko » Wed Feb 13, 2019 12:53 pm

Hi guys,

long time haven't been here. Hope everyone is doing great. NJGuy, heard you are switching back to Infiniti :P

anyway, yesterday I went to see my mechanic and was told I need to replace both front lower control arms. The is some play in the ball joint. Beside that, he mentioned I would need to replace a stabilizers as well.

Has anyone done any work with front lower control arms so far? Any suggestions? I found Dorman control arms going for 240+tax CAD (Ontario Toronto). Is that ok brand to go with?

thanks,

piSSko

Since I have no place to work on my care but to go to mechanic, here is the awesome video for anyone who plans to do some work on their own.

How did this work out for you I posted today about problems getting tires to line up correctly after both arms and tie rods were done?

Anyone have any tips on how to remove the LCA bolt that is attached to the strut? It's seized to the bushing....
