Need to be pointed into the right direction with this. Can't align my car due to "2 ball joints and 2 control arm bushings". They want almost 800 to replace parts. Way to much for what is needed...just want to be safe on the road. Is there a control arm you can buy that has all new parts, just slap it on? Or do i have to buy individual parts to piece it together. Would like to replace ball joints, bushings and might as well do shocks/struts. Not sure about springs... Just a daily driver that goes to local car shows.

I had good experiences with UMI and BMR. but i don't think you will get these parts below 800 bucks. or you may try summit if you wish to remain stock. sometimes they have real bargains for control arms.

Looked up control arms for a "supreme" (mines a brougham...) but no control arms offered for the car

There your 800 buxx less than 200 in parts and 600 in labor. What a scam!!



The lower mount holes have to be drilled for 1/2 bolts

You can buy new bushing an have a shop put them in if you don't have the means or as you know buy new arms w/ ball joints - rock auto has them too.

Ya I knew better than to let them over charge me. I will do it myself, just need to figure out what works or what is worth doing. Rebuild arms or buy arms.
