: 98 Catera Front Suspension Pictures - HELP

11-02-06, 10:56 AM
Does anyone have a set of photos that show the Front suspension system? In particular the location of the lower and upper control arm bushings, tie rod ends, sway bar ends etc?

Any help really appreciated.

Thanks everyone.

Here are the control arms:

The Catera has a McPherson strut suspension so there are no upper control arms.

By sway bar ends I assume you're referring to the sway bar end links.

I don't have a picture of them mounted on the car but this is what they look like:

Don't buy them from the dealer. I was quoted nearly $300 for the 2 of them. I bought them on eBay.de for $35 including shipping.

But they sell upper and lower control arm bushings? Are they refering to the one that goes horizontal and the one that is positioned vertical?

Where did you hear that there are both upper and lower control arm bushings?

Almost every thread I read about it refers to upper and lower control arms.
