Q: Bad control arm bushings--how to recognize

asked by on

What are the symptoms of bad control arm bushings?

A: The control arm does what it says - it cont...

The control arm does what it says - it controls the wheel. There are two parts down and one part where the wheel is and it has a top and bottom. So if the bushings go bad, you get too much play on the car, and when it is really bad, steering wheel will wobble and lose control even at low speeds. This will be especially unsafe when you corner hard, and there is a lot of strain that might clonk. And when you corner really poorly, the car won't straighten up that well when you turn back. You have to physically turn the wheel to go back and get it to go straight. If you think you are having a problem with this part, I would recommend getting your steering and suspension inspected by a professional technician. They will be able to help you correctly diagnose your issue and let you know if you need repairs on your control arm, or any other part.
