All bushings in the lower control arm were dry rotted out and had to get new bushings pressed in. I wasn't able to get a control arm with the bushings pre-installed, that would have made it a lot cheaper and easier.

Noisy 'clunk' when going over bumps - brought it to mechanic & it's been verified that it's the control arm. Fairly expensive, so haven't repaired it yet.
