Asked in Nissan Pathfinder
Why does your 2002 Nissan Pathfiner wobble when you try to accelerate after releasing the gas pedal?
The rear suspension Trailing Arm bushings are likely worn out and/or the rear shocks are in need of replacement. There is an upper and a lower trailing arm on both sides of the vehicle in the rear suspension. As a test, grab a firm hold on the lower trailing arm and try to twist it. If your able to move it even a little, the bushings are shot.

How do you replace 1977 Chevy truck control arm bushing?
Asked in Steering and Suspension, Toyota Celica
Can you purchase bushings for 1990 Toyota Celica rear control arm or will you have to replace the entire control arm?
Though the original rear control arm bushings are designed to NOT be replaced, yes, you can purchase bushings for 1990 Toyota Celica rear control arm. To my knowledge, there is currently only one place in the world that manufactures all of the ones you could need and that is SuperPro Suspension in Australia. They are currently sold on eBay from the UK (GBP). Following are the appropriate and some associated suspension/performance part numbers: SuperPro SPF2730K Rear Control Arm Inner Front Bushing: 2 bush/2 tubes This part does 2 inner ends of the 2 forward arms SuperPro SPF1221K Rear Control Arm Inner Rear Bushings: 2 bush/2 tubes This part does 2 inner ends of the 2 rearward arms SuperPro SPF2731K Rear Control Arm Outer Bushing Kit: 8 bush/4 tubes This part does 4 outer ends of rear control arms SuperPro SPF0823K Rear Trailing Arm Bushing Kit: (8 bushings, 4 tubes) This part does both ends of 2 entire trailing arms SuperPro SPF0462K Rear Sway Bar Mount To Chassis Bushing: 2 bushings For bar 14 to 17 mm diameter SuperPro LP8001 Rear Complete Sway Bar Link order 2 per vehicle I haven't done mine yet but am about to order them and give it a try. FYI: they are NOT CHEAP but WAY less expensive than replacing the "locating arms" or "suspension arms". I ordered a set of these arms and trailing arms from a junkyard and will rebuild those first. You will have to either press out or cut out or burn out the old ones. Guess we'll see.

How d o you change a strut arm bushing on a 99 saturn sl?
Saturn S series vehicles do not use a Strut arm... nor do they have a Strut arm bushing. I'm assuming your referring to the sway bar bushing in the center of the lower control arm. This bushing is not serviceable alone, the replacement of the entire lower control arm is needed if the bushing has failed.

Asked in Ford Windstar
Where is the radius arm bushing located on a Ford Windstar?
Why does the axles or the control arm move or shift from side to side when sheering?
I am having the same problem and it turns out to be that the bushing in the control arm to the frame is shot. The control arm is not suppose to move at all. This will also cause tire wear. You can actually replace the bushing at an inexpensive cost however, if you try to buy the bushing kit from the Saturn dealer, they will tell you that you have to replace the control arm. That is very expensive. By the way , you need a press to replace the bushing.
How do you change a lower control arm bushing?
First you jack up the side of the car you want to replace the control arm bushings and support it with jack stands. Remove the wheel. Remove the stabilizer bar to control arm nut and bolt. Remove the balljoint clamp bolt and nut from the steering knuckle. Remove the bolt and washer front the control arm front pivot. Unbolt the control arm rear bushing retaining strap. Remove the control arm from the car. Once the control arm is off the car you can replace the bushings in it.
Asked in European Cars, Steering and Suspension
What is a control arm bushing?
Its a rubber piece that holds the control arm to the frame of the vehicle it is round like the control arm to allow the arm to flex. (The control arm holds the wheel to the frame and uses the control arm bushing to flex over bumps while holding the wheel vertically and keeps your tires wearing properly).
How do you replace VW Bug torsion bar system?
Your best bet would be to purchase a Haynes manual. Remember... safety first! Jist: disconnect brake lines,remove hub cap , loosen lug nuts, remove cotter pin and 36 mm, jack up car and secure on jack stands, remove wheel, remove drum brake, remove emergency brake cable, remove the clip holding brakeline and disconnect brakeline from the trailing arm. remove lower shock mount, notch the trailing arm and spring bar to ease realignment, remove driveshaft. remove 17 mm Allen nut on trailing arm and the three bolts holding trailing arm to torsion arm... remove trailing arm. Put a jack under the torsion arm and jack it up until the arm lifts slightly off of the stops. Remove the four bolts and the torsion plate, remove the outter bushing. IMPORTANT: (do at your own risk) do not get any part of your body underneath the torsion bar while in this position... you could get hurt. With a prybar, pry the torsion arm past the stops and slowly lower your jack. Once the torsion arm is under no stress, use an angle finder to find the angle (will help with reassembly). Remove the torsion arm and inner bushing. Remove the torsion bar. Assemble... in reverse probably... haven't done it yet. Hope this helps.
