Default Does this video confrim it ?

I assume this means the bushings are shot ?? It makes a snap noise now when braking and releasing the brake at low speed...

This is with the Buick jacked up and applying the brake

well I changed both sides today and it turns out the drivers side ( the one in the video ) was the better of the two !! The passenger side was almost in 2 pcs....car rides much smoother, no more bang and a hard shift I have had for months when downshifting from 4th to 3rd is GONE !

Go it alinged today too... The job is super easy...40 minutes both sides with air tools and it was done...
