Q: Control arm bushings

asked by on

I recently got my car inspected and found out the car needs new bushing in the lower control arms. The repair place told me that they couldn't just replace the bushing they would have to replace the whole control arm. Replacing both lower control arms on this car is about 680 dollars where as fixing the bushings only would be exceptionally cheaper. Is it possible to only fix the bushings? If so do you know of any shops that would do that?
