The 1993 Mercury Cougar came equipped in a 3.8L V6 and 5.0L V8. Both powertrains have the same upper and lower control arm assemblies with new ball joints and bushings already installed. Approximate shop labor for this job may be 1.5-2.0+ hours. Mechanical labor rates per hour do vary by individual shop also. The vehicle will require an alignment after install. It is advisable to replace both the right and left front lower control arms as pairs to keep wear equal. As of 2014 the cash wholesale cost for the MOOG right lower control arm assembly #CK80055 is around 50$.

Go to AutoZone.com, They have on line repair manuals.

The bushings can now be replaced. I would replace the whole arm while its out, the ball joint is riveted in the frame Go to AutoZone.com, They have on line repair manuals.

First you need to jack the vehicle up and support it on stands, then remove the tire. Remove the torsion bar and disconnect the lower shock mount, and remove the stabilizer bar connecting rod from the lower link. Loosen the lower ball joint nut, and use a ball joint separator to separate the ball joint from the lower link, then disconnect the tension rod from the lower link. Remove the front lower link pivot nut and push the stud out, then remove the torque arm from the frame. Remove the ball joint by removing the retaining bolts and install the new one, I suggest you replace the bushing as well.
