    Werid noises from front suspension.

    My Cadillac STS V 6 2006 is making funny noises from the suspension rubbing squeaking could it be the struts? Could the shocks cause the same problem?

    The bushing is not a separately available part IIRC for reasons that escape me right now.
    Which is why 1BadCadSTS said to replace the lca (Lower Control Arm) assembly.

    Must replace lower control arms! Easy to do if you have proper tools, and it MUST have a ALIGNMENT after completion. Camber/Caster adjustment is made thru the lower control arm

    Re: Werid noises from front suspension.

    What's the going rate for the LCA? I got a local mechanic to quote the total job and for that kind of $ I'll get dirty and bust some knuckles. But I have to ask a couple of questions. First of all, is there not an aftermarket bushing option? And secondly, what's the downside of not fixing and waiting a while? Is there a risk of catastrophic failure at some point down the road? Will not fixing right away cause other components to fail in the future?
