DIY A-ARM BUSHINGS
INTRODUCTION!!!


Painted A-ARMS


This job was one of the worst job's I've ever done in a Saab. It's right up there with the power steering rack!

Unless you have a true desire to do this one yourself, Royce and I HIGHLY recommend you bring this job to your mechanic. If you still desire to do this one yourself, a press is a must, and buying new lower A-Arms will save you lots of time!

The reason why I did this is because my engine is out and my suspension was making squeeking noises when going over bumps. I've changed everything else, so the A-Arm bushings were the only thing left to replace!

Some other things that can be done at the same time are:

  • Replace all sway bar bushings
  • Replace the CV boots
  • Replace ball joints and tie-rod ends
  • Replace front shocks

Changing the upper A-Arm bushing can be done with the engine in the car, but it's not easy! Lowers can be done at anytime.

I did this job when my engine was removed so this section will not cover what to do with the engine in the car.
