How are upper control arm bushings replaced on 1991 Chevy s-10?
The upper control arms can be fairly easily removed, placed in a vice and disassembled. This is not something you really want to do at home. But as easy as it is if you have the time and tools, the dealer will usually talk you into replacing the entire control arm, especially as old as this one is. The holes the bushings fit into wear as well, and the ball joint on it is probably shot too.

Unfortunately, the entire lower (or upper - I forget) control arm has to be replaced when the ball joints need replacing. In any case it's not something I was willing to tackle in my driveway. Even if you could, you'd have to get the front end re-allighned. I had mine done professionally. Done in one day....and $850.00 later. I had both drivers side and passengers side done, uppers and lowers. Otherwise nobody will guarantee the… Read More

If you're going to replace the UCA bushings in your full-sized Chevy (as I am about to) - now, before you start would also be a good time to take note of the entire front suspension system to see if any other items (coil springs, ball joints, tie rod ends, etc.) will also need to be replaced. The reason, being that since you will have to un-do practically all of the above off, to get… Read More

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. Read More

This may be caused by a bent or improperly installed control arm. If the question refers to the rear control arms, the installation procedure requires setting the rear suspension to the correct "design height" (by removing the coil springs and jacking each hub to the correct height using a spacer) before tightening the control arm mounting bolts. This removes undue torsional force from the control arm bushings which can lead to premature failure Read More

I had the same problem with my 1996 Pathfinder. I, like you chased after the sway by replacing the front struts, the rear shocks and having a four wheel alignment performed. I called my dealer to ask if they have seen similar 'sway' issues in other Pathfinders. From their response I gathered that this is a common problem with the Pathfinders. The fix for me was to replace 8 bushings in the rear suspension. Because… Read More

Why would a 2001 Pathfinder swerve when the foot is taken off the accelerator while travelling at moderate to fast speeds and again when acceleration is resumed?
This one is easy. 96-04 pathfinders all have 2 rear control arms (upper and lower) with bushings at each end. These bushings are notoriously weak. Typically every 50K miles or so, they need to be replaced as they develop slight tears in them with use. These tears are NOT visible without removing the control arms. It's a fairly simple job, however removing the actual bushings from the arms is very difficult to do without the… Read More
