Rear Upper Control Arm Serviceable Replacement

Postby og_bumpy_knucklez » Sat Nov 25, 2017 9:05 am

Hello. I have been searching for a rear upper control arm that comes with a serviceable ball joint. I don’t believe it exists. Any suggestions?

My motivation is I am replacing the rubber bushings with polyurethane versions. All pen control arms have non serviceable ball joints. Feels a little wrong pressing out bushing in a new oem part. But if there is no other option I will get over it.

Thanks

You could look into ball joint replacements like MOOG and if those exist, then plan for that when the time comes. If it's not broken, don't fix it! :) I'd replace the bushings if that was my project. Leave the arms and ball joints alone IMHO.

Making yourself replace arms and then planning for replacing ball joints and then hoping for adjust ability and then... it's all a slippery slope that is holding you back from doing what you wanted originally.
