I had new struts put on the front of my Catera today. The mechanic called me into the shop bay and showed me my control arm bushings that need replacing. I searched through the posts and saw a few people asking about them. The only answer i seen on where to get them was someone posting ebaymotors.de The person who wrote that thread replied with i dont speak german.

I am in the same boat. I have been looking for awhile now and cant seem to find them anywhere. Does anyone have a schematic of the front end and/or part numbers for the bushings. If there is a german speaking member who could find the info for me on ebay and help me through the ordering process it would be greatly appreciated.

Remove wheel. Remove brake caliper

Remove 18mm nut/bolt clamping the hub to the ball joint.

Use a ball joint pickle fork to pry the hub off the joint. This will destroy the joint.

Remove 13/16 nut and bolt from the vertical bushing. Remove 13/16 nut and bolt from horizontal bushing.

Remove control arm.

Bushings can be pressed out with a large press.

Ball joints rivets need to be drilled out if you are not replacing the entire arm. New B-J bolts on.

Assembly is the reverse.

Make sure you have the car aligned afterwards.

Part descriptions & numbers for the Front Lower Control Arm Parts are as follows:
Front/Horizontal Lower Control Arm Bushings (each) - 90576775
Rear/Vertical Lower Control Arm Bushings (each) - 9156605
Front Lower Ball Joint (each) - 90542995
Front Lower Control Arm - Right - 90576789
Front Lower Control Arm - Left - 90576788
