CTT Front Airshock Mount Bushing & Control Arm Replacement


Description

This DIY is for those who need to replace the front shot mount bushing or front upper control arms.

If you notice your car is squeaking a lot at front, not smooth over bumps, has noises coming out of front, chances are your shock mount bushings are damaged and need replacement.

If you need to do this, I hope you can use this tutorial to get it all fixed.  Hope it helps.  Feel free to give feedback afterwards.  Thank you.

 

Pics labeled *-DRV are for driver side shock...otherwise everything else is same on both sides.

      Has anyone installed 08-10 Cayenne Turbo S lower control arm in 955 S.  I have MY04 Cayenne S.
      And can MY06 955 CTTS LCA be installed in MY04 CS?
       
      part number for MY09 CTTS is 955-341-017-61.
      part number for MY06 CTTS is 955-341-017-50
       
      I went to the dealer and compared the two, they look almost identical except for a little bit bigger outer diameter where it joins the upper control arm.  It is the #3 bolt location that seems very slightly larger in outer diameter.

      Folks,
      I started noticing this intermittent creak/groan on the driver's side front suspension, every time I egress the car, after a spirited drive. 
      I have had some creaking due to the lubrication loss in the ball joint area from the rear and have used the hole-in-the-rubber-boot to inject grease to keep the noise from recurring. I did the same for the front, just to be sure.
      This noise puzzles me.
      Based on my research, it may be the front strut mount bearing but didn't want to go about replacing parts without your opinions.
      It doesn't occur when the steering wheel is moved from corner to corner though or feel different during a drive.
      Shows up only when there is downward pressure on the foot area in the driver side, during egress or when pressure is applied on the car side fender over/near the strut area. 
      Here is a video of the latter, for audio on two creak/groans between the spring movement.

      Appreciate your insights on what this can be...
      My car is clocking nearly 173K ...so wondering if this can be a simple DIY  or figure out the need to have a complete strut bearing and/or strut replacement.
       
      Thank you,
