Question Asked: Replacing lower control arm bushings and the lower ball joint bushing
November 08, 2010, 11:01 AM
My lower control arm bushings are cracked but the lower ball joint bushing shows little wear as well as the upper control arm bushings and upper ball joint. My 2000 E-430 has 117,000 miles and I've never replaced these items. How many hours should it take if I did it myself and are there any special tools I will have to have to compress the retainer springs? Also, how much should I be charged for replacing all 3 of the lower bushings on both sides?
