I just had a front end alignment about a year or a year and a half ago and the guy tells me that I need lower arm bushings replaced my car doesn't seem like it has those problems. I don't drive it that far and I take care of it so do you think he told me this because I would not know what he is talking about? Do you think I should get a second opinion? thanks

    always get a second opinion. yes the lowere control arm bushings con go bad. the easy way to check is to have a friend start the car put in rev. hold foot on brake (firm) turn the wheel so u can locate the bushing and go drive to reverse while holding the brake. you will see the loose bushing if bad.
