Question about 1998 Buick Century
How hard is it to change the lower control arm bushing on a 1998 Buick Century? I printed out the detailed dealer directions from the public library and it says I need to remove the whole lower control arm. Is this really necessary or can I just lower the control arm enough to get the new bushing in place?
I just did this job on my 98 regal, and I own the service manuals also. The lower control arm bushing that usually goes, is the front one. The rear one doesn't usually go, it is horizontally mounted. The front one for some reason is vertical. The control arm must be removed, and put in a vise. The front bushings outer metal sleeve, must be driven out with a chisel. It comes out easily. The new bushing can be tapped in with a hammer. Hope this helps!
