Photo DIY- Lower Control Arm Bushing R/R ON-VEHICLE

Since #1 Son's Euro-Delivery GLA250 arrived? This means I will have more access to the Old-Bird E320.

Sooo, I am driving, and notice several new, subtle annoyances, mostly Right-Front-Wheel-in-Location. Since I had recently replaced the Lower Ball Joints, and have re-packed the Bearings... there is not much left, other than the LCA Bushings.

The symptoms include slight steering wheel vibration, slight "drift" to the right, and some subtle 'clunks' on rough roads.

Because my LCA's, themselves, are in good-looking shape, I opted to simply change out the Bushings.

I went with Lemfoerder brand, which I believe is the SAME as my Original Factory-Installed Bushings. (nearly 20 years, and 188,000 Miles on these bushes!)

Now, to be Clear, the Posted procedure is NOT the 'Official WIS' procedure, which prescribes Completely Removing the WHOLE wishbone.


I will give a *HUGE WARNING*.... If you DON'T have the Correct Spring-Compression Tool, and if you DON'T have the Skill-Set to be working around Springs?? Then you *SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT THIS JOB*!! Automovie Springs are *DEADLY*, so leave it to a professional shop if you have any Doubt!!
