My brother in law (mechanic) just installed new control arm bushings and ball joints on my 2000 catera with 70,000 miles on it. He could find nothing wrong with them other than the ball joints might have had a little play in them. Before, when I would go over a bump my front end would shake and make you think there was something seriously wrong. Now it is nice and tight and runs very smoothy. I could not believe the difference!! Maybe it is these terrible Michigan roads. LOL

Should improve your tire wear as well... when the bushings are worn out the toe changes and as a result wears tires under braking or steering loads... etc.

Where in mich are you?

I been itching for a get together with a few of the Michigan members... Myself Fred and a one other members are in the Detroit area... see where I am going with this?
