        Installed a pair of MOOG lower control arm bushings in less than 2 hrs in my 2001 Chevy Venture minivan. Used metal sleeve from old bushing to "tap in" and drive new bushings home. Suggest viewing online video prior to installing.

            Simple to install. Used a punch to knock the old one out and pressed the new on in. Took maybe 5 minutes per bushing.

                Comments about Moog Control Arm Bushing:

                This is a pressed in part. Be sure to get the loaner tool kit to press it into position. Some people said to remove the entire arm, but all you have to do is take out the center bolt. Then pry it away from the frame mount. You won't get it completely away but far enough to get the old out and the new in. Place a block of wood between the frame and Arm so you can work. Use a torch if needed to get the rubber soft and out. Then a chisel to get the old outer metal ring out. Press the new one in, you may need to move the Press Clamp around to get it fully seated. Then use a floor jack to raise the wheel spindle, when you do insert the bolt until you get it all the way in. Be careful not to lift the car off of the Jack Stands! Have fun...

                        The bushing seem to be as good or better than the OEM bushing. This is a difficult job to install. If you do not have the OEM tool you can split the old bushing with a torch after you have removed the old rubber. (so you don't start a fire) The old bushing then comes out easily. The new one can be isntalled with a rubber mallet on a block of wood.

                          I've installed this product in my own mini-van. Once putting in the Moog control arm the noise from bumps, turning and initial take off. This improved part performs great, over OEM, under enthusiast driving while keeping the vehicle in alignment. I only use the Moog control arm bushings on all the vehicles that need them for they last long. For I've never had a person with one that worn out yet. Because my bushing I install in 2000 on the Grand Prix is still performing smoothly.

                          • Q:

                            I have a 2005 Saturn Relay 2 minivan. I have checked the bushings and they clearly need to be replaced. Should the whole control arm be replaced or just the bushings? What other suspension components should be replaced if any in relation to the bushing/control arm replacement? What special tools do I need if any? thanks

                              Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience. I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                              Yes, you need to remove the control arm to replace it. It needs to be pressed out and pressed back in. No special tools required but I advise using a press to get them back in. A chisel and a hammer will do the trick to get them out of the arm.

                              The OEM tool is required if you do not have a torch to split the old bushing. You also could buy a ball jiont press and then purchase a 3" exhaust adaptor and cut it to about 1.5" long to use as a large adaptor. You can pount the new bushing in with a rubber mallet on a block of wood. You will have to remove the lower control arm and will surely need new sway bar links.
