#33789, "Prothane - Front lower control arm bushing"


          

Hey guys,

Does replacing the bushings on the lower control arm with poly negatively affect anything?

I know people recommend not replace the bushing that mounts to the shock fork b/c it seems to cause excess shock wear. But I was looking at the geometry of the stock suspension and it seems like the inboard bushing on the lower control arm is intended to allow for some horizontal movement of the arm as the the wheels are turned left or right.

Wouldn't replacing that rubber bushing with a rigid poly bushing hinder this steering movement?

Yes if your going to replace the control arms replace them with spherical bearings.
