Good luck. jr's3800 and I spent hours trying to find something. Don't get gray hair over the search. Go OEM, or learn how to make your own.

You will need a press to remove the control arm bushings and install the new ones.

Just bring the removed arm in and have it done in a shop.

Replacing all the bushings, subframe mounts, sway bar links, and all rubber, engine mounts, and steering rack mounts, will definitly give the car a new car feel, and ride ehh?

I'd like to do the same to my LeSabre too, but it'd cost me well above 600 bucks to do that. And i don't know if i'm keeping my current engine yet, or putting something with a little more grunt in it. I may do the rear suspension though.
