Most aftermarket bushings comprised of polyurethane do need lubricated to prevent binding. Do the trailing arms come with zerk fittings so they can be greased? When they are installed it is customary to grease the sides where they bolt on to prevent them from squeaking and binding.

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.

1998 Nissan Pathfinder sways in a rocking motion Worse when it's in 4 wheel drive but lately it's getting worse.?

It's most likely your lower Trailing Arm bushings that are severely damaged. It can also be the upper Trailing Arm bushings. Grab the arm and see if you can twist it. If so, it needs to be changed. You can get polyurethane bushings from or you can buy the entire arms from I changed just my lower with polyurethane and the rocking stopped. I still need to replace the upper but I didn't like the dealer price ($600) and, like i said, my rocking stopped.

How do you change front control arm bushings on a 1996 Jeep Cherokee 2WD?

Use a ball joint press. You can get one from Harbor Freight. You'll most likely need the accessory kit as well. You can use the press in different configuration to press the old bushings out, and the new bushings in. Even the front upper bushings in the axle can be pressed out, although it may be a little tricky setting up the ball joint press to do the job.

Worn bushings most likely. It happens, because remember that for every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction... so it holds true with the rotation of that broom... there'll be constant motion against those bushings in the broom arms, and they will wear out over time.
