1999 Toyota Camry Question: How to change control arm bushings in 1999 Toyota Camry LE 2.2L?

 

Question

Had loud rattling in rear and took to car lot to have assessed.. was told that control arm bushings were bad. Due to horrible timing, they were replaced temporarily with used parts and now the problem is back and as bad as it ever was. Sounds like my tires are going to fall off. I would like to try to get the parts myself and change myself this time, but internet offers little on "how-to" for this topic. Do I need any special tools to do this and how do i do it? PLEASE HELLPP! :)

    Same answer as your other question. Have this work done, do you have a car savvy buddy with a good set of tools?

    Yes, I do. My husband is very knowledgeable when it comes to cars and has a very nice collection of tools. But he has never has to do this type of work, changing bushings

    Ok then that is a different story! Search youtube, lot of very good videos! That's a pretty good buddy to have! Just tell him to take his time, he can do it. Same for the seal.
