    Angry2006 SRX Front Lower Control Arm Bushings

    Creaking noise noticed from the front end of my 2006 SRX. Local Cadillac dealer incorrectly diagnosed bad struts. Had second opinion from a local repair shop. They found bad front lower control arm bushings. Unfortunately, GM does not provide replacement bushings. You can not buy them anywhere. Instead, you have to buy a complete control arm with bushings installed. Had new control arms installed and the noise was eliminated. I complained to GM and they responded by saying that by providing new control arms, they are saving customers money in the long run because the new control arms will live longer as opposed to simply replacing the bushings in the present control arm. Cost me over $$850.00 for new control arms including labor. Bushings cost about $25.00 each. Not sure how this GM policy saves money for owners. The control arms will last forever. They appear to be made of a aluminum alloy of some sort.

    Ye and the labour to install said bushings is the same as or more than just swapping the whole arm, so is it cheaper to change just bushings?

    You still have to take the arm off, then set up to press the old ones out then the new ones in, then reinstall. So will you really save money with bushings?
