|Photo DIY: Upper Control Arm R/R|
Well... after nearly 200k miles, my Upper Control Arms (UCA's) have broken Boots, and are 'Creeeeeeeeking' Over rough roads.... Like Nails-on-a-Chalkboard... Eeeeekkk...
Anyhoooo, this is another rather 'easy' job.
Like always... WIS/M-B 'MANDATES' Replacement of Self-Locking Fasteners... So much so?? If Mother-Ship finds out a Warranty Job was done with the OLD fasteners?? They will deny the ENTIRE warranty Claim!!! Sooo, I guess they really are Serious!!
As with ALL suspension jobs.. it is prudent to have a 4-wheel alignment done, preferably on a Hunter Laser unit..
Here is what my UCA joints looked like!
