How do I know I need a Control Arm Replacement?
Control arms are a major component of your vehicles steering and suspension system. These are designed to move as your vehicle is driven, to keep the wheels in contact with the ground and allow for proper vehicle control under normal driving conditions. Bushings on the control can wear out overtime – and on some vehicles they are not separately replaceable. The control arm will also have a ball joint when on the front of the vehicle. When these wear out, they may or may no be serviceable independent of the control arm.
