    Default Rear Control Arms (banana)

    Yesterday Plasma and I changed the rear control arms on the veccy and a bit of swearing and someone loosing the nut inside the chassis wonder who that was Dean.

    Right after taking the old ones off and checking the bushs, both were solid with a very little movement but with the new ones the end that fits to the wheel hub end is very movable (like if on a hinge)

    Is correct is it an upgrade to this part or do i have the wrong arms fitted to the car now, car doesnt seem to be any different to drive.

    The original ones I took off mine & the new aftermarket ones I fitted had a solid metal / rubber bush on the inside.
    The outer one had a spherical type bearing to allow movement / alignment for the wheel hub.
