Yes they can. But it would be easier if you downloaded our forum software to your phone. Goto the itune store and search for IB automotive group. Once installed, it will keep track of all of your favorite forums and allows uploading of pics to the forums also.

Well Shawn That is great news... Dont forget to get alignment done..how does it align then?
I just got back from shop with a better photo of the LCA (passenger side)
It is wide & fairly beefy...

The bushing is completely round no Cut or flat side.

Here ya go I think. See if these specs match your old bushing. I'm thinking they should be about perfect. More Information for RAYBESTOS 5651177

I actually found those from the bushing that fits the Riviera arm that appears to match yours and interchanges apparently. I figured maybe if you pulled that bad bushing or could get at it for some measuring, you might be able to see if this matches what GM used in yours. I haven't heard back from Buick Engineering Dept yet and who knows, I might never hear squat, but until then I figured why not try some different angles to get some info.

In reality I dont think I would even pull the LCA unless I was certain I had the correct size bushing to press in. Or have a complete LCA ready to replace.
If and when I ever get to do this, both sides will get done with new struts bearing/top plates the whole kit and kobodle...
My bushings are still holding together, just fine rubber cracks appearing....from age.
Hopefully Buick responds with dimensions! Thanks for the info here.

Here'* pics of the 97-05 Regal control arm nxt to the (PA) control arm. As u can see they r pretty much the same as far as size go. Only difference is the "sway bar link" mounting location. But it still fits!
