2004 Nissan Quest front control arm bushing replacement.

We need to replace front control arm bushing. It is told that Nissan only offers whole control arm and no replacement bushing. Is there any way to only replace the bushing? Whole control arm is expensive an not needed.
Thanks a lot.

    I checked on those parts websites but only for 1993-1998 or 1999-2002 Quest bushings were listed. What is your suggestion?

    Thanks a lot again.

    I also have same problem w/ lower control arm bushings on 04 Quest. I also checked the web site for Kragen/Checker. Yes, in deed they carry this bushing $24.99, but not from Autozone. Question is, will I need a special tool/skill to replace these bushings, or, is it "Slum Dunk" job? Please let me know.

    Kragen/Checkers carry these bushings, but Autozone does not. In order to replace bushings, do I need to have special tools/skill, or, is it "Slum Dunk" job? I do have tools to remove lower control arms, but I've never worked on the bushing replacement in the past. I should have wheels aligned after replacing the bushings, shouldn't I? Can someone advice? Thanks,

Sorry guys not a solution but I too have an 04 Quest, which supposedly has worn controller arm bushings and Nissan says I need both controller arms replaced. For a total of $950!!! I was told that they need to replace the whole arm and cannot replace only the bushings. Now reading the posts on this site I find that to be untrue. Seems all I need to spend is anywhere from $25 to $35 per bushing.

I had located the bushings at www.checkerauto.com for 24.99 ea. Naturally a dealership will sell you more than what you need.

You can get just the bushings at autozone, checker, napa auto part stores for about $30.00 to $35.00. You can replace them yourself or take the vehicle to the shop.

Yesterday, my 2004 Nissan Quest had the front end bushings and control arms replaced. The car still has a "knuckling" noise when I'm making semi-hard left or right hand turns. Forget about hard turns!! ...


it usually does but you have also an intermediate shaft that connects steering column to steering rack, I know those at times can cause the exact noise you describe although what you replaced usually does.

Bad left lower ball joint 2004 nissan quest


most of these ball joints can be installed by themselves however since the control arm are so light it is unsafe just to do the balljoints still in order to replace the control arm you dont need to compress any springs just take it apart and put a new one in.

Metal to metal klanking noise in the right front wheelwell area


That is true as far as a Genuine Nissan replacement part is concerned. The bushings are not serviceable through Nissan. You may be able to find them at an aftermarket parts store (ie. Napa, Advanced Auto, etc). If you don't have the tools to push the old bushing out and the new one in, the arm may be the best way to go (and the easiest). Just remember to have the car aligned after replacement to ensure proper tire wear.

Hope this is helpful!
