    Default Has any one replaced the lower aluminium arm bush

    Has any one had to replace the lower aluminium arm Bush.
    Is that what it is the part the spring sits on at the rear of the car ?
    The bush has worn at the top as you look at it, the side where it connects to the hub. Looks like a metal sleave is starting to show
    Any one know the part number & how easy it is to fix (looks easy)

    I think that you will find that the lower control arm is pressed steel. To replace it first remove rear spring, remove outer bolt then inner bolt (only two holding it in place) but remember to mark the position of the toe-in adjustment eccenntric disc on the inner bolt. They suggest new bolts.
