Lower control arm replacement procedure


Recommended Posts

Hi

Can someone please point me to the factory procedure for replacing the lower control arms. (I'm just going to buy the whole arm assembly x2 rather then muck around with individual bushings).

I'm not going to tackle it myself, but clients who run a tyre shop will do it for me. They pointed out they were stuffed when they rotated my tyres last, and the front end clunks like crazy.

They mainly work on Fords, but they'll do it if I source the parts, and give them the procedure as a guide.

Is there anything else I should replace while they're doing that? (upper arms?).

I have air suspension....

Thanks

DS

I'm sure you could probably do a search and find the torque specs. But, as for the procedure - it's not hard and they shouldn't need any special guidance. It's 3 bolts plus the ball joint and it comes right out. You just want to make sure they don't torque the bolts back down until the car is resting on all 4-wheels, or they put a jack under the tire to get it into the correct position. But - this is how it should be done on any car.
