I am needing new front control arm bushings. So I figured that most likley I could use new upper control arm shafts as well. I dont know this forsure just guessing.
Do any shafts come with poly bushings instead of rubber? Or is there a kit that has poly for the whole front that has shafts as well?
Also I dont know the condition of the control arms. But it seem like I recall reading on this forum that some of the front control arms need reinforcement.
So a few questions related to that.
1. What should I look out for on my arms when working on them?
2. If my control arms are needing replaced who on this forum sells refurbished arms? I know i have seen them somewhere.
3. How do I reinforce them or can I get the supplier to do it?
4. Would I just be better off with aftermarket arms If mine are bad? On these I am not concerned about originality but I do want to be able to go to Napa or any other place and purchase replacement worn out items such as bushings and ball joints.
You might also consider offset cross shafts. As our cars age the frames sag making aligning them a little more difficult. By installing offset cross shafts now you might help solve a future problem. I learned from experience. JMO though. Pete
