    99 Deville Lower Control Arm has been " discontinued"

    So now what? Dealership can still get the drivers side, but the passenger side has been " discontinued"

    I have it parked in the garage, the shuttering steering wheel was getting worse and worse. Half the bushing is gone on the non-knuckle connection. I'm getting " traction" messages when starting from a stop as well, although it could be un-related...

    Moving the tire top to bottom and left and right...all seems tight, no play, but you can definitely see the rubber missing on the front bushing. Shocks seem good as well. And rotating the tires did not help.

    I found this
    http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/more...331&cc=1352865

    ...which states "front right" ..but can't find front left. Does anyone know...is this the correct replacement for 99 deville?

    Am I way off base as this, half missing bushing, being the cause of the worsening steering wheel shutter?

    Try energy suspension for bushings. Need to measure carefully.
    I've done it for other cars. Not a Deville yet.

    See if these guys have what you need. They make/sell replacement bushings for the control arms.
